The Biomedical Science Graduate Program is an interdisciplinary graduate program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Science. Our program prepares students for careers in research and education in the life sciences. All students receive a broad-based training in modern biomedical research through an interdisciplinary core curriculum that covers the basic knowledge and skills necessary for research in all areas of the biomedical sciences. Students may also become familiar with the individual laboratory environment of different faculty before choosing an advisor by participating in laboratory rotations. There are currently over eighty faculty from seven departments participating in the graduate program. Most of our students receive financial support through graduate assistantships, which includes a stipend and payment of tuition and fees.
New students will pursue their degrees in Biomedical Science with a concentration in one of the following five areas:
