Quotes from students:
“Everyone knows who you are you are not just a number.”
“I really like the fact that the program is growing”
“I get excited about coming up with my own ideas”
“There are a number of investigators that I can go to for
questions, that I can just drop in their lab any time and they tend
to be really good.”
“Its very fast paced and I really like the challenge”
“Although it seems like a small university, but there is a
lot of exposure that we get too, which we’d be missing in
other big universities for sure.
Do you want a biomedical sciences Ph.D. from a University big enough
to be at the forefront of research, but small enough to give you
personal attention? Do you want to focus on your area of study,
without becoming isolated? Do you want to personally interact with
experts in your day to day work? Do you want to learn in an environment
where you know you are valued as an individual?
Then look no further than Wright State University: Ohio’s
first interdisciplinary biomedical sciences PhD program.
The Dayton area’s fame as a center of innovation began over
100 years ago with the Wright Brothers. That reputation continues
to this day, thanks in no small part to the spirit of innovation
that continues here at the University that bears their name. In
the Wright State Biomedical Sciences PhD program, our research is
cutting edge, but our methods of education and training are also
setting a new standard for Ph.D education.
“At this level you really do need that kind of support. You
need the ability to work one one one with your advisor, and that's
Graduates from our program have rewarding, well paying careers
in a wide range of fields. The possibilities are incredible. You
could work to cure diseases which plague our society. Or you can
choose to work in fields across a broad spectrum of disciplines
Whatever your area of interest, the Wright State Biomedical Sciences
Ph.D. Program has the flexibility to give you the training you need.
No where is this more apparent than in the options for incoming
“In the first year they gave me the opportunity to rotate
in three different labs. So I could experience what kind of research
goes on in the labs and see it first hand and then make up my mind
as to whom to choose as my mentor and what kind of research I am
going to pursue for the rest of the three for four years I was here.”
The Wright State University Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. Program is
built on traditional biomedical departments, and we’ve organized
our training focus into 4 areas of concentration:
Neuroscience and Physiology
Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology
Structural and Quantitative Biology, and
Integrative Biology and Toxicology
Whatever your area of interest, take a few minutes and see how “it
all works together” at Wright State University.
