Merkin Graduate Fellows Program

Established with the generous support of Dr. Richard Merkin, the Merkin Graduate Fellows Program provides UC San Diego graduate students with a novel opportunity to conduct innovative research abroad on topics related to human health and longevity, including in fields broadly related to translational medicine. Merkin Graduate Fellows will work with researchers and clinicians across the globe with the goal of driving bold, transformational advances in medical research and clinical applications, and at the same time impact Fellows’ personal and professional futures.
