How advisors work?

  • Research advisors provide the advice and guidance leading to valid conclusions and precise research. Advisors work closely with the student so they craft an accurate PhD thesis.

What is PhD Thesis Research?

  • This is research-based and prepares students to become independent investigators. The dissertation/thesis is the culmination of the graduate degree. It represents an original critical or synthetic treatment of a subject in the student’s field. It documents research formulated independently and presents findings in a manner consistent with publications in scholarly journals or scholarly books.

Our graduate students are co-advised.  Having two advisors allows for a broader and more multidisciplinary perspective on research.  INBT has a host of faculty advisors across Engineering, Arts & Sciences and Medicine.
