Kennesaw State University won a more than $1 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to boost the number of doctorate-holding scientists from underrepresented groups.

The grant is designed to recruit college graduates annually who eventually want to get a doctorate. Participants will get master’s degrees in Integrative Biology or Chemical Sciences and will then enroll in biomedical doctoral programs.

NIH picked KSU because it already has multiple NIH-funded researchers.

Jonathan McMurry, associate dean for research and associate professor at KSU, will lead the program. The first class of five students starts this week.
