Welcome to the Kent State University School of Biomedical Sciences Website, where you can learn about our world-class faculty and the outstanding research facilities that are available to students, providing a unique and exciting environment that supports interdisciplinary graduate training and research in areas of science related to medicine. Here, you can earn your Ph.D. and gain valuable research experience at Kent State University and our partner institutions, including the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute!
The School of Biomedical Sciences was founded in 1987 to provide graduate training in five biomedical science disciplines: Human Evolutionary Biology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Neurosciences, Pharmacology and Physiology.
The scientists making up the School's graduate faculty are drawn primarily from various departments at Kent State University, the Northeast Ohio Medical University and the Lerner Research Institute of the Cleveland Clinic.
We are excited to announce the establishment of Kent State University's new Brain Health Research Institute (BHRI). The BHRI is committed to improving our understanding of brain function in health, disease and repair. The mission includes the development of new approaches aimed at understanding an array of neurological disorders by identifying genetic, environmental and behavioral influences that impact brain health across the lifespan.
Financial assistance is available and the school offers competitive stipends, tuition remission and subsidized health insurance.
