Sciences Interdisciplinary Graduate Program is aimed at
training scientists with an interest in biomedical sciences. This
interdisciplinary graduate training program is administered jointly between
the School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM) and the Weldon School of Biomedical
Engineering. This unique Ph.D. program fills a need for a
medically-oriented program for scientists who wish to undertake careers in
such areas as implantable medical devices, natural biomaterials, tissue
engineered therapies, drug delivery strategies, and diagnostic sensors.
This program emphasizes biomedical approaches to diagnose and treat human
diseases. Two signature areas of this program are biomedical research in
spinal cord injury and nanomedicine approaches to
cancer and other diseases.
