MARC Visiting Scientist Program

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) Visiting Scientists Program for Minority Institutions was initiated in 1981. In this Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) program, U.S. based FASEB member scientists (see visit minority institutions for periods of one or more days to present lectures and seminars of general and practical interests; provide advice on research, curriculum, and graduate opportunities; discuss career trends and opportunities in the biomedical/ behavioral sciences; and assist in the preparation and development of grant proposals. Follow-up visits by the scientists are encouraged as a means of fostering collaborative research opportunities, as well as creating opportunities for reciprocal visitations by faculty and students from the host minority institutions. Feel free to visit for further details on the program and information on how you can participate in this program.
