McNair Medical Institute
Our goal is a reflection of the deeply abiding concern and respect Janice and Robert McNair have for the health and happiness of all mankind. With urgency, this mission is being pursued through the selection of McNair Medical Scholars, recruited from the world’s brightest medical research scientists and doctors, along with the formation of seven specially designed research projects. The key areas of research are breast and pancreatic cancers, Type 1 diabetes and the neurosciences.
In 1998, the McNair Scholars program expanded to the Baylor M.D./Ph.D. program by supporting students during their entire training of both medical and graduate school. The McNair Scholars program now includes both faculty members and M.D./Ph.D. students and continues to grow each year.
