The measurable goal of the CSU RISE Program is to increase the numbers of graduates who are successful in being admitted to academic graduate programs that lead to a biomedical Ph.D. degree. In the ten-year period prior to the start of the RISE Program in 1999 an average of one graduate per year was accepted to an academic doctoral program. Since the start of the RISE program more than 40 have been admitted to academic doctoral programs   and as of this date 14 RISE alumni have been awarded PhD degrees.  Click here for a current listing.
