Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences

The mission of the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences is to provide a rigorous and stimulating research and training environment for UCC students. Our students provide the intellectual resources needed to advance the research and educational goals of the institution and to provide a new generation of scientists.  The faculty is committed to excellence in interdisciplinary research training for qualified candidates who will continue to advance the fundamental knowledge needed to conquer disease and promote health and improved quality of life for all people. The knowledge and skills acquired will enable the graduate to be successful in biomedical research conducted at universities, government and private industry laboratories, as well as in education.  The Program also prepares the graduate for advanced training and research.

In the pursuit of this goal, there are departmental research laboratories furnished with high quality equipment, supported by service and administrative areas in each department.  A common instrumentation laboratory, a tissue culture laboratory, an electromechanical shop, an immunoretrovirology laboratory core facility and a radioisotope laboratory supplement the above space.  Each department is equipped with computer facilities.
