The Biomedical Sciences PhD program curriculum contains multidisciplinary training that prepares students for careers in research. Core coursework and lab rotations provide students with a broad background in the biomedical sciences, while advanced training is individualized depending on the student’s interests. Fields of study focus on the molecular, cellular or organismal basis of human diseases, including cancer biology, cardiovascular physiology, endocrinology, infectious disease, neurobiology and reproduction.
Our program aims to develop graduates who will pursue careers as independent investigators with an appreciation for both basic and clinical aspects of biomedical research.
