Our research is focused on new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat human illnesses, such as COVID-19, Ebola, influenza, HIV, inflammatory bowel disease, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
The Institute for Biomedical Sciences is on a mission to advance human health. Our researchers have been making exciting discoveries, and they’re tackling some of the biggest health issues, from COVID-19, flu, Ebola, HIV, inflammatory bowel disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and pneumonia. These talented scientists are focused on developing innovative approaches to prevent, diagnose and treat human illnesses that would lead to better patient care and new clinical applications.
The institute is also transforming education. We’ve adopted an innovative approach that combines instruction in several key areas: biomedical science, business, entrepreneurship and law. Our interdisciplinary academic programs are tailored to the biomedical industry’s needs, and students in our new bachelor’s degree program in Biomedical Science and Enterprise, as well as our master’s and Ph.D. programs, are taught the technical, legal and commercial aspects of scientific discovery.
Graduates are prepared to become leaders in the biomedical field and compete for high-demand jobs, including positions in biotechnology, pharmaceutics, consulting, education, outreach, government and other fields. They’re also equipped to pursue advanced degrees in science, business and law.
In addition, our world-class research centers provide a stellar training ground for students interested in biomedical research, giving them access to state-of-the-art facilities and mentorship from leading researchers in the field.
Join us in our efforts to improve the health of people across the globe and mold the next generation of biomedical scientists and professionals. When you donate to the Institute for Biomedical Sciences, your dollars will fund scholarships, lab and classroom instruction, and cutting-edge research.
