The Institute of Biomedical Studies at Baylor University offers an innovative interdisciplinary program in biomedically-related areas of science leading to the PhD Degree. This program benefits from the participation of an extremely diverse faculty who are actively involved in basic as well as translational research, on the home campus of Baylor University and at various other sites, including especially the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.

While many of our students begin the program with a customized didactic program on the Baylor University campus, students holding the MS degree or who have completed other relevant graduate work are especially encouraged to apply. Rotating through laboratories, students explore a variety of research opportunities in order to select a faculty mentor (or mentors!) to supervise their dissertation research. Active research programs are found in Immunology, Biochemistry, Virology, Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, Medicinal Chemistry, and Environmental Science.

dendritic 2Many of these programs are directed by world-class faculty housed at Baylor University (in Departments such as Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Neuroscience, and Environmental Sciences). additional faculty are located in research institutes in Dallas (Baylor Institute for Immunology Research, the Institute for Metabolic Disease, and the Islet Cell Laboratory) or perhaps you would like to consider researching in Singapore.

Students participating in our PhD program are supported with competitive stipends as Teaching or Research Assistants We encourage you to explore our web site or to contact us directly to learn more about our program, which combines high academic standards, first-rate facilities and research, and a caring environment that values the student.
