The INSPIRE program serves to fulfill two important goals: prepare diverse university-trained Ph.D. scientists for careers as scientist-educators in undergraduate colleges while increasing the participation of diverse populations in biomedical science research. The program has also increased interaction of RWJMS faculty with students and faculty of the partner schools. It has also enhanced the professional development of other trainees at this school who participate in INSPIRE activities (workshops on scientific writing, courses on scientific teaching).
Dr. Soto is also the Founder and Faculty Advisor for the BIO Links (Biosciences Links to Teaching) K-12 Outreach Program, which partners graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at RWJMS and Rutgers with local middle school and high school science teachers.
