Each student's curriculum is tailored to match one's background and interests while at the same time providing essential Track-specific training. Most Tracks have recommended or required courses, but students can choose electives that are outside of these recommendations. It is quite normal to find students from many different Tracks sitting side-by-side in the same classes. Biological and Biomedical Sciences provides an extensive menu of graduate courses covering the full spectrum of research disciplines, and descriptions of our most recent course offerings.
