Current Graduate Students
Welcome to the School of Life Sciences graduate program!
Our goal is to provide you with broad, interdisciplinary training in modern approaches to life sciences research. We will help you develop the skills you need to embark upon a successful career path.
With mentoring from faculty who are experts in their respective fields, and with access to modern research facilities, our graduate students are successfully reaching their career goals.
Our graduate students are typically supported by teaching or research assistantships. You may receive additional financial support from the Graduate Programs Office, including supplemental summer stipends and conference travel grants.
We encourage you to search and apply for additional funding from other internal and external sources (see right).
