Biomedical Studies

The Institute of Biomedical Studies at Baylor University offers an interdisciplinary program in biomedically-related areas of science leading to a Ph.D. degree.

Students typically begin the program with a customized didactic program on the Waco campus. After rotating through several laboratories in order to explore the variety of research opportunities, students select a faculty member to supervise their dissertation research. Faculty housed in numerous departments at Baylor direct research projects in areas such as virology, immunology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, molecular biology, neuroscience, and bioengineering.
