An Innovative New Doctoral Program
The Translational Biomedical Sciences PhD program, offered by the Institute for Biomedical Sciences at Georgia State University, will provide an innovative and interdisciplinary training experience driven by world-class faculty mentors, cutting-edge biomedical research, and state-of-the-art facilities.
A unique curriculum designed to integrate classroom education, laboratory research, and professional development will ideally position graduates to become leaders in a wide variety of biomedical careers in industry, research, education, and medicine. Strong alliances with local, regional, and national partners will define a signature translational biomedical sciences training experience that prepares graduates to enter the rapidly expanding life sciences sector in Georgia and nationally.
Key areas of educational and research focus in microbial pathogenesis, infectious disease, vaccinology, immune regulation, cancer biology, systems biology, and translational medicine, will be complemented by cross-training in the commercialization of scientific discovery. In partnership with the nationally-recognized J. Mack Robinson College of Business and the College of Law, specific coursework will be offered in entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as legal aspects related to translating basic science advances into improvements in human health.
Graduates will become the next generation of leaders in the biomedical arena, poised to address the most challenging health-related issues of the 21st century.
