GRADUATE – Our graduate training methodology has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation as an innovative new approach to multidisciplinary training, integrating research and education. It combines traditional disciplinary coursework and laboratory training with peer-to-peer teaching, co-advising, and professional development.
Research in science and engineering has become increasingly multidisciplinary, reflecting the demands of modern technologies. In addition, nanobiotechnology is an important emerging area that will address many problems that affect human health. Therefore, the guiding philosophy behind our graduate training programs is to train doctoral level (PhD) scientists and engineers who will create new knowledge and develop new technologies that will be crucial to the future of the nation’s effort to integrate nanotechnology with the life sciences and medicine. Our program allows students to be grounded in the discipline of their primary doctoral degree and builds upon this foundation with courses, tutorials, and experiences that position them at the leading edge of expertise.
The Institute for NanoBioTechnology has established a certificate in nanobiotechnology that is designed to attract PhD students seeking: multidisciplinary training, spanning the physical sciences/engineering and biological science/medicine. Students will be exposed to the disciplines relevant to nanobiotechnology in various ways. Learn More
