Applying to PREP


The deadline for Tufts PREP applications is March 31st.


The Post-Baccalaureate Research Program (PREP) at the Sackler School offers one or two year research apprenticeships for recent graduates who are interested in pursuing research careers in the biomedical sciences. The PREP is designed to increase the training possibilities for those currently under-represented in biomedical science research.

Generally, training begins July 1, but occasionally appointments are made at other times during the year.

Applicants to PREP apply using the online application system for the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences.
