PUMAS Program
Friday, November 3, 2023

Join alumni, past and present mentors, and Gladstone’s community to celebrate 10 years of the PUMAS program. For the past 10 years, the Promoting Underrepresented Minority Advancement in the Sciences (PUMAS) summer internship program has provided historically underrepresented community college students with laboratory experience before they transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor’s degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM).

You’re invited to join this reception to connect and reminisce with old colleagues, as well as network and share your experiences from the program. 

This event is private and intended for invited guests only. 

The PUMAS program, first established in 2014, is funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health through a grant that supports educational activities that enhance diversity in biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research. The principal investigators of the grant are Melanie Ott, MD, PhD, director of the Gladstone Institute of Virology, and Sudha Krishnamurthy, BDS, PhD, director of Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Education and Research Development Affairs.
