Apply to Degree Programs
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences offers a range of graduate programs that provide advanced training in biomedical sciences and prepare students to become leaders in the academic sector, the biotechnology industry or in other areas related to biomedical research.
Basic Science PhD Programs
The Basic Science Division offers four PhD programs: Genetics, Molecular & Cellular Biology; Immunology; Molecular Microbiology; and Neuroscience. We welcome applications from US citizens, US permanent residents, and non-US citizens. Students who wish to pursue a basic science PhD at GSBS must complete a bachelor's degree, preferably in the sciences, before beginning graduate school.
GSBS, in conjunction with the Tufts University School of Medicine, offers a combined MD/PhD degree program. The MD/PhD is designed for students who want to pursue careers as physician scientists. To be eligible for this program, individuals must complete the course requisites, the MCAT, and fulfill technical standards required by the medical school. Our program is supported by a Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) grant from the National Institutes of Health. Due to federal restrictions, only US citizens and permanent residents are eligible for MSTP grant funding.
Clinical & Translational Science MS and PhD Program
The Clinical Research Division offers MS and PhD degrees and welcomes applications from US citizens, US permanent residents, and non-US citizens. These programs are intended for individuals trained in the medical sciences, most commonly fully-trained physicians. Others with similar backgrounds (e.g., DDS, DVM or PharmD), advanced biomedical or clinical degrees, or substantial biomedical or clinical research experience may also be considered.
MS in Pharmacology & Drug Development
This two-year Master's program welcomes applications from US citizens, US permanent residents, and non-US citizens. Students who wish to pursue a MS degree at our school must complete a bachelor's degree program, preferably in the sciences, before beginning graduate school.
