Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBMS)

We like to say "your breakthrough in science starts here." With more than $40 million in annual external funding supporting an impressive array of biomedical research programs and projects, and a student-to-faculty ratio of 2:1, the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences offers students an exceptional opportunity for hands-on scientific discovery.

Here are just a few areas that have and can continue to benefit from your support:


The graduate faculty comprises about 90 individuals, most of whom direct ongoing, externally-funded, state-of-the-art research programs. Current projects focus on:

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Neuroscience
  • Cancer
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Regulation of gene expression
  • Cell signaling
  • Embryological development

Students and Academics

We are able to offer our students excellent physical resources due to the generous contributions of donors, like you.

  • Research laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art investigative equipment, providing capacity for advanced research techniques, including mass spectrometry, in vivo physiological monitoring, and gas or liquid (HPLC) chromatography.
  • Our Comparative Medicine Facility (accredited by the prestigious Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care), provides excellent housing and husbandry for research animals.
  • Scholarships will allow more than 150 students pursuing a Ph.D. or Master’s degree in one of our scientific disciplines to follow their dreams without the burden of debt and will also provide an expanse of opportunities for those students underrepresented in the Basic Sciences.
