Dr. John Matsui and Dr. Murty Kambhampati are on a mission. Both are biology mentors working hard to help more minority and women students, who are traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, realize academic success, despite challenges they may face. Matsui, director and founder of the Biology Scholars Program (BSP) at the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley), directs a program that first casts a wide net on eligibility, then offers a structured experience designed to help participants succeed.
