PhD Program

All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.
— Albert Einstein

Einstein’s extraordinary graduate experience produces independent biomedical scientists capable of carrying out significant, award-winning scientific work to improve the health and well- being of humankind.

Our Ph.D. program now boasts over 1,200 graduates employed in a wide range of academic scientific careers, as well as in non-academic settings worldwide.
