The Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program offers students an exciting opportunity to gain a broad understanding of the biomedical sciences in a beautiful southwestern setting. We are extremely proud of our interdisciplinary and cutting-edge program that prepares our graduates for research and success in the modern world of Biological, Medical, and Translational Sciences.

We have built an outstanding curriculum supported by a vigorous faculty engaged in nearly every aspect of basic biomedical sciences. Our students choose from multiple research concentrations including Cancer Biology, Cardiovascular Physiology, Infectious Diseases & Immunology, and Neuroscience.  The University of New Mexico's Biomedical Sciences faculty are making significant contributions to a multitude of medically related research topics. Our students, faculty, and staff take advantage of exceptional research facilities to compete at the apex of their fields. In addition to our School of Medicine faculty, the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program is complemented by affiliated faculty in the UNM College of Pharmacy, the UNM Biomedical Engineering department, and nearby affiliated national laboratories. In total, our program offers students the opportunity to work in over 100 different laboratories!

Thank you for your interest in our program. Come see why so many students are considering joining our graduate study program. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Nan
