The School of Biomedical Sciences was founded in 1987 to provide graduate training in five biomedical science disciplines: Biological Anthropology, 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. Applicants interested in applying to our program through the Lerner Research Institute should follow the link below for more details and contact information.
We are also 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.
