The Millennium PhD Program (MPP) is a program offered by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. In the new millennium, collaborative efforts between basic and clinical investigators are crucial to realize the wealth of knowledge derived from the human genome project and other important discoveries in biomedical research. These collaborative relationships will result in significant improvements in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases. The MPP ensures that physicians are equipped with the tools necessary to allow patients to benefit from the remarkable advances in knowledge derived from the basic biomedical research. The MPP grants PhD degrees to people who previously earned an MD. The MPP is open to UMMS physicians with an MD or equivalent degree and UMMS graduate and undergraduate medical students who are officially enrolled in any of the clinical clerkship, residency and/or fellowship programs at UMMS, or who have completed such clinical training. This collection showcases publications and presentations authored by students in this program.
