Research Track MS
This two-year program is designed for individuals who wish to pursue careers in biomedical research and can serve as either a terminal degree or as preparation for PhD studies. Program applicants must have completed a comprehensive series of graduate-level courses on the fundamentals of modern research biology (including G715, G716, G717, G817, G855, G505) as well as two years of D861 (seminar), electives and at least 12 hours of D860 (research) with completion of a laboratory-based thesis or research paper. Participation in this program does not require the traditional anatomical courses. Applications for the Research Track are considered only after the potential student reaches a mentoring agreement with a faculty member with whom the research work will be done.
