The Biomedical 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
Interdisciplinary Graduate Program fills a need on campus 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.
