Graduate Education

Master Degrees

Biomedical Research Technology (MS)

This program is intended to offer a sound theoretical background and intensive hands-on training in the principles, techniques and technologies that are relevant to current research in the Biomedical Sciences. Graduates of this program will most likely find employment as research staff in biomedical research institutions (universities, medical centers), in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, and government agencies. In addition, this program provides excellent training for students who want to enter PhD programs but have had little exposure to bench research in their undergraduate years.
