The mission of the RISE program is to increase the number of minority/underrepresented individuals in biomedical research careers by preparing students for a successful transition into biomedical-related graduate programs, ultimately leading to PhDs. Morgan State University's program is targeted towards undergraduate students.

The Extreme Science Internship (ESI) Program provides funds for selected Morgan State University undergraduates to spend 8-15 weeks working at participating in materials research through the Johns Hopkins University Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments (CMEDE) at universities, the Army Research Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and other institutions.

The overall goals of LSAMP are to significantly increase the quality and quantity of under-represented students who successfully complete baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), along with increasing the number of under-represented students who successfully enter and complete graduate programs. More specifically, the program aims provide STEM students with the opportunity to conduct research on campus with a research mentor affording them a continuous research experience for 2-3 years which will make them more competitive for graduate school admission.

The Student Research Center (SRC) is a registered Morgan State University undergraduate student organization, partially run by students with the support of the SRC Coordinator and faculty advisor. The SRC encourages networking and health research enrichment for the students by engaging students in a vibrant research environment, where they will be surrounded by and can exchange research ideas with peers and near-peer mentors. It is a place where students will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of biomedical research and to interact with other students who have a shared interest in biomedical research.
