Help support student research

Medical research by faculty and students results in discoveries that change people’s lives and redefines the way health care is delivered. This research provides a cutting-edge learning environment, making the University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth campus a leader in educating the next generation of top-notch medical professionals.

On the Duluth campus, students participate in the Student Assistantship Research program (STAR).  STAR students work in partnership with medical school faculty throughout their two years on campus.  After their STAR program’s completion, students write a summary of their research findings. This summary may be submitted to professional journals and/or presented to other medical professionals. The STAR program has been offered on the campus for over twenty years and is one reason why alumni are successful both in residency and later in their careers. Please consider supporting students through the University of Minnesota Medical School Duluth Student Research Fund.
