Entering students typically have a background in biology or related disciplines. Although there are no rigid prerequisites students will usually have taken as a minimum chemistry (through organic), one year of calculus, one year of physics, a course in biostatistics, as well as a relevant background in the biological sciences. Deficiencies in these areas may be remedied by course work and independent reading.
All applications should be submitted on-line through the Graduate School, which has more information on deadlines and the application procedure.
Prospective students are encouraged to contact individual faculty members in advance of submitting a formal application to inquire about graduate training opportunities.
