Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program Doctor of Philosophy

About us

The theme of the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program is "The Biology of Human Disease."

Designed to allow graduate students to build a solid foundation for their professional life as a interdiscplinary researcher, the program trains students to investigate human disease through a process of integrating information across several traditional biomedical research disciplines.

Research opportunities include over 350 laboratories available for research in a variety of disciplines at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Our graduates possess a breadth of understanding for the mechanisms underlying human disease, which coupled with intensive integrative research training, positions our graduates for success in a wide range of career opportunities.
