Thanks to The Max and Minnie Tomerlin Voelcker Fund, the program is successfully preparing students for college while developing the next generation of biomedical scientists. More than 60 percent of the students in the program are female this year. Faculty members Drs. Chapa and Piña lead the program. Since 2007, the Voelcker Fund has generously supported biomedical research and education at the UT Health Science Center.
