Program Description

The goal of the Neurosciences, Systems Biology, and Bioengineering (NSBB) program is to train students to apply strategies of cutting-edge engineering, integrative biology, and bioinformatics to impactful questions of fundamental biology and human health.

The Department of Basic Sciences in the School of Medicine offers graduate programs leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in three areas through the Integrated Biomedical Graduate Studies Program (IBGS).


The core curriculum provides a broad background in molecular biology, immunology, and medical microbiology and infectious diseases. Advanced courses allow each student to fully develop an area of interest.  Research strengths of the program include: cellular and systems neurosciences, bioinformatics, molecular biology, computational modeling, biostatistics and data analytics, radiation physics, functional/structural imaging, in vivo and in vitro physiology, and biomedical engineering.
