About the Office
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences currently has seven graduate programs: biochemistry and molecular genetics, biotechnology, cell and molecular biology, medical microbiology, pharmacology and neuroscience, pharmaceutical sciences, and physiology. Some graduates of these programs work in private industry, however, most hold postdoctoral fellowships and faculty positions at major medical schools throughout the United States and abroad.
The philosophy of the GSBS is to provide each student with a broad understanding of biomedical research. This is accomplished on the Lubbock campus by requiring doctoral students to complete a common first-year curriculum. The first-year curriculum consists of introductory courses in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Cell Biology, Human Physiology, Pharmacology and Cell & Molecular Immunology.
