Program Description:

The Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at the New York University School of Medicine is a division of New York University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, which offers graduate training programs in the basic medical sciences, leading to the Ph.D. degree and, in coordination with The Medical Scientist Training Program, a combined MD/Ph.D. program. The Institute encompasses the basic medical science departments at the School of Medicine which offer interdisciplinary training programs in Cellular and Molecular Biology, Developmental Genetics, Medical and Molecular Parasitology, Microbiology, Molecular Oncology and Immunology, Neuroscience and Physiology, and Molecular Pharmacology and Signal Transduction. When applying for admission to the Sackler Institute, students have the option of either applying directly to individual training programs or entering an "Open Program." This latter option allows students the opportunity of performing research rotations during their first academic year in any laboratory of a member of the graduate faculty in the Sackler Institute, regardless of their departmental or program affiliation. Students then select a thesis adviser and program affiliation by the end of their first academic year.


New York University is a member of the Association of American Universities and is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
