The Biomedical Sciences (BMS) Graduate Program at Marshall University is an interdisciplinary program leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Biomedical Sciences. Offered by the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, the BMS Program graduates students who are broadly based in the biomedical sciences with definite interests and special in-depth training in one of the following areas of emphasis (i.e. research clusters):
- Cancer Biology
- Cardiovascular Disease, Obesity, and Diabetes
- Infectious and Immunological Diseases
- Neuroscience and Developmental Biology
- Toxicology and Environmental Health Sciences
These areas of research (also referred to as “research clusters”) are designed to be interdisciplinary, flexible and research-oriented in order to develop the interests, capabilities and potential of all students pursuing careers in academic or industrial biomedical sciences.
