What do we mean when we say, “It all works together”
at the Wright State University Biomedical Sciences PhD program?
First, let’s get an important detail out of the way: we know
that all Ph.D. Students need to be able to support themselves.
The good news is that our stipend for biomedical science PhD students
is competitive with the nation’s leading universities. This
good news becomes great news when combined with the low cost of
living here in the Dayton area.
But the great news gets even better. As a mid-sized city, Dayton
enables you to experience cosmopolitan living without all the headaches
of larger cities. There’s always something going on in Dayton,
from professional and collegiate sports to arts and music to shopping
and recreational activities. And where ever you are in Dayton, you’re
always within a few minutes of great hiking, biking, and water sports
Dayton is also centrally located, within easy reach of several other
large cities. Here at Wright State University, we know your time
is important to you, so we’re proud to say that, on average,
our students complete the Biomedical Sciences PhD program in only
five years. In our program, “it all works together”
in one other important way we want to be sure you know about.
Within the program we’ve created Centers which provide state
of the art equipment and expertise to all of our researchers and
students. What this means for you is more opportunity for hands
on work with the latest technology and the chance to work alongside
experts in a wide variety of fields. Outside of our facilities,
our students participate in a diverse range of real world industrial
and governmental research opportunities.
We’re right around the corner from Wright Patterson Air Force
Base, the largest Air Force base in the nation, and the headquarters
of the Air Force Research Laboratory.
Our collaboration with Wright Patterson opens the door to an incredible
range of resources and expertise. Now that you’ve heard about
our program overall, be sure to take a quick tour of our areas of
concentration. We’re sure you’ll find what you’re
