Application Information

Biomedical graduate programs in the School of Medicine provide students with opportunities to conduct exciting research within five departmental programs. Each program draws faculty from both basic sciences and clinical departments, with researchers addressing basic biologic mechanisms and clinical approaches to treating disease. Research funding in the School of Medicine continues to increase, and the University was again recognized as a Carnegie Classification Research 1 institution (highest research activity) in 2018. New and established research areas continue to flourish, with focus on environmental toxicology, spinal cord injury, cardiovascular health and disease, cancer treatment innovations, and interactions of microbiome with disease states.
