Biomedical Sciences ETDs

 
The Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program is an integrated departmental program. It provides students with a broad-based, one-year core curriculum followed by focused course work and thesis/dissertation research. Research is conducted in faculty laboratories in the various basic science departments in the School of Medicine. In addition to our School of Medicine faculty, the BSGP is complemented by affiliated faculty in the UNM College of Pharmacy, Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute and Los Alamos National Laboratory who may direct graduate student research. To receive their degree, students fulfill the requirements of the BSGP in one of six Research Areas.
