Biotechnology Graduate Program

Our mission is to educate an interdisciplinary group of students in polymer chemistry, material science, cell biology, and experimental surgeryThe Biotechnology graduate program began as the Artificial Organs, Biomaterials & Cellular Technology (ABC) program in 1986 by an interdisciplinary faculty cluster in order to meet the interests of graduate students in the specialized field of Biomedical Engineering, as well as the interests of medical students in the science and technology underlying organ replacement therapy. The Program encourages students from multiple disciplines to experience research in close relation to biomedical engineering students, while working in the field of biotechnology.
