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.
Prospective students are encouraged to contact individual faculty members in advance of submitting a formal application to inquire about graduate training opportunities.
Other general questions about the application process can be sent to our graduate program directors.
