The School of Public Health’s Summer Training and Research (SPH UM*STAR) Program was launched in 2008 with funding from the National Institute of Health's National Health Lung and Blood Institute.

UM*STAR is designed to provide traditionally underrepresented undergraduate students with two consecutive summers of a 10-week research training and career development program to enhance their potential to apply for and complete graduate degrees in biomedical and behavioral science relevant to preventing and treating cardiovascular disease. 

The 2018 program dates are June 4, 2018 - August 10, 2018.
