The Wright State University Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. Program is
built upon the infrastructure of vigorous traditional departments
in biomedical and biological sciences, physical sciences, biomedical
engineering, and computer science. The diversity of perspectives
and research programs of our faculty from all these departments
forms the foundation of our interdisciplinary program.
Our wide range of knowledge and expertise is focused around four
Biomedical Science areas of research and training concentration:
Integrative Biology and Toxicology, Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology,
Neuroscience and Physiology, and Structural and Quantitative Biology.
The hallmark of our program is its emphasis on personalized learning,
exemplified by close student-faculty interactions and peer exchange.
Laboratory studies are supplemented by informal and formal seminars,
journal clubs, laboratory meetings, travel to national meetings,
and individual student-mentor discussions.
In order to benefit students and researchers across our entire program,
we’ve created “centers” which maximize our cutting
edge equipment and research expertise. The centers enable researchers
from the entire Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. Program to collaborate
and share valuable resources in Comprehensive Neuroscience, Genomic
Research, Bioinformatics, and Cellular Dynamics.
Regardless of the area you choose, our graduates are well prepared
for exciting, high demand biomedical careers in academia, medicine,
Students in our MD/Ph.D. dual degree program and the Learning with
Disability interdisciplinary Ph.D. program work in the areas of
concentration described here. If an MD/Ph.D. dual degree, or a Learning
with Disability Ph.D. degree interests you, see the description
of those programs as well as the more complete descriptions of each
of our areas of research and training concentrations.
