Congratulations to all on a great PhD admissions season
Jaharis Building in the spring

Dear GSBS Community,

April 15 marked the deadline for confirming acceptance into GSBS’s four basic science PhD programs. Thanks to all the administrators, faculty and students for a highly successful recruiting season; this year saw a 40% increase in applications. Kudos especially to admissions director Laura Felch, who developed new approaches for recruiting and outreach.

The incoming PhD class includes 24 students (19 in Boston and 5 in Jax), 8 of whom are members of underrepresented groups (33%). Admissions is ongoing for our Masters programs in Pharmacology and Drug Development and Clinical and Translational Science, as well as the combined MD/PhD programs. I hope that as our new students join us, you will warmly welcome them to our GSBS community.

Dan Jay, Dean
