The Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program

The Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program trains independent research scientists to enable them to bridge the wide gulfs that currently exist between basic science research and clinical medicine. Graduate students acquire a broad understanding of human disease, therapeutics and design of predictive experimental model systems through an innovative and rigorous program that integrates medical curriculum with mentored research and critical analysis of research-based modeling of human pathophysiology.

The program trains students pursuing a Ph.D. degree and is for any student with a B.S./B.A. or M.D. or is currently in an M.D. program.

Research offers superior therapeutic approach for MS
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide. This debilitating condition periodically shutters communication between the brain and other parts of the body, resulting in symptoms that range from numbness and tingling in the arms and legs to blindness and paralysis. While treatments are available to alleviate inflammation, no therapies exist to protect neurons or repair the degraded myelin sheath that normally surrounds nerves.
