Biological Sciences Scholars Program

The Biological Sciences Scholars Program (BSSP), established in 1998 within the Medical School, has been a cornerstone of U-M’s commitment to attracting top-tier junior faculty. This program is designed to bring in exceptional candidates by offering additional funds to enhance startup packages along with the prestigious title of Biological Sciences Scholar

In 2018, the Biosciences Initiative Coordinating Committee (BICC) expanded the BSSP to all 11 units conducting life sciences research, fostering the development of a new generation of leaders in bioscience research across U-M. This expansion has allowed us to broaden our reach and continue our mission of advancing the biosciences field.
