The School of Biomedical Sciences is comprised of over 100 highly talented graduate faculty that are committed to excellence in research and teaching. Their expertise range from molecular, to cellular and organismal levels of biological organization, often with a focus on understanding human disease states. These faculty represent multiple departments across Kent State University, plus institutions including Northeast Ohio Medical University, The Lerner Research Institute of the Cleveland Clinic, The University of Akron, Youngstown State University, Akron General Medical Center, and Summa Health System. Collectively, their work is supported by grants from major public and private funding agencies, including the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Education, the Department of Defense, the American Heart Association, the Ohio Board of Regents and a number of private companies. Over the past five years, our faculty were awarded over $150 million in extramural funds to support their research and their graduate students.
Faculty with graduate status in the School of Biomedical Sciences are organized into five primary disciplines that align with the School's degree programs.
- Human Evolutionary Biology
- Cellular & Molecular Biology
- KSU/Cleveland Clinic Collaborative Doctoral Program
