Welcome to the inaugural issue of our Biomedical Sciences magazine, “We Are…Bridging Medicine andScience.” This magazine will be published annually and will provide both highlighs and in-depth feature articles about the Biomedical Sciences (BMS) Graduate Program at Marshall University’s Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.
Miranda Carper, a current Ph.D. student, conceived of the title for our new magazine as part of a contest among our graduate students. The play on the initials for our “BMS” program conveys the essence of our mission – research and graduate training that will lead to improved treatment of disease.
Our goals for this publication are:
- To inform alumni, members of the Marshall University community, greater Huntington community leaders, and state and federal policymakers about our program and its accomplishments;
- To recognize the achievements of BMS faculty and students; and
- To serve as a recruitment tool.
I look forward to sharing our many exciting research projects, and student and infrastructure accomplishments. I also welcome any questions, comments or suggestions related to this magazine or to our BMS prgram. Please direct them to me at email@example.com.
Thank you for taking the time to read our new issue!
