Please look over the Program Information for future opportunities.

The ultimate goal of the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences (IBS) PhD Program is the education and training of biomedical and health scientists with a focus on understanding the basic and applied aspects of biomedical phenomena. The program recognizes that the biomedical and health sciences have become very broad in scope and may draw as needed from traditional disciplines as unlikely as journalism and agricultural sciences. Within this goal, our mission is to provide students with a wide array of research opportunities in several more focused curricula, while assuring that all students receive core training in molecular sciences, communication skills and scientific ethics.

Tracks currently offered through the IBS program are in Cancer Biology, Disease Ecology, and Biomedical Research Science.
