In The News

Increasingly, scientific work is becoming interdisciplinary. In response to this trend, we allow the student to focus on more than one area in biomedical science. The concept is appropriate for both those entering as well as those currently employed in the field, including research technicians, clinical laboratory workers, science teachers, and science administrators. For those currently employed, the flexibility of our program can enhance their performance in a present position or open up new employment opportunities.
