Mission Statement:

The Office of Graduate Education supports the development of future biomedical science leaders. We promote innovative recruitment and training, stimulate purposeful career development, remove barriers to success, and foster a collaborative, inclusive research community.

Our mission is accomplished in diverse ways. These include administration of the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program, an umbrella admissions and first year graduate program for students interested in our 14 PhD programs in the biological and biomedical sciences. We provide assistance to training grant directors in preparation of their grant submissions; this includes student data, information on responsible conduct of research statements and current diversity recruitment initiatives. We also administer a wide variety of programs to support graduate training and the larger biological and biomedical science community on campus. These programs are administered by the Science Training and Diversity (STaD) unit within our office, and include the Academic and Career Excellence (ACE) Program, Initiative for Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD), Postbaccalaureate Research Experience Program (PREP), Graduate Training Program in Translational Medicine (PITM), Summer of Learning and Research (SOLAR), as well as our Training Initiatives in Biomedical and Biological Sciences (TIBBS).

If you have any questions or any suggestions please feel free to contact our office – we would love to hear from you.
