Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences

This program offers an opportunity for talented students to acquire scientific knowledge, technical and communication skills in research areas such as infectious diseases, neuroscience and reproductive biology, pathology, clinical science, and human-animal interactions (HAI). Other areas of interest may be open depending on the faculty mentor’s research interests. Students with interest in infectious disease may have opportunities to perform research in several high security laboratories including a Biosafety Level 3 Regional Biocontainment Laboratory. Students with interest in Clinical Sciences or Pathology will have the opportunity of conducting research in a teaching/research veterinary hospital. The NIH now recognizes HAI as a field of study with opportunities for traditional and non-traditional employment in this growing field.
