The Molecular Medicine and Mechanisms of Disease (M3D) Ph.D. Program is committed to recruiting diverse participants, including students with a broad spectrum of scientific interests, students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, students with physical or mental impairments that limit any major life activity, and students from economically or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
In addition, the University of Washington is committed to providing equitable access to learning opportunities for all students through universal design and reasonable accommodation. Disability Resources for Students (DRS) is the campus office that collaborates with students who have disabilities to provide and/or arrange reasonable accommodations.
If you have, or think you may have, a disability (e.g., mental health, attentional, learning, chronic health, sensory, or physical), please contact the (DRS) to arrange a confidential discussion regarding equitable access and reasonable accommodations.
