While a major focus of BMS is multi-disciplinary training for all students, each of the 9 Research Areas listed below provide an opportunity for students to specialize in a major area of modern biomedical research. Each research area builds from the first year core courses and includes advanced training activities, including seminars and journal clubs to facilitate detailed discussion of literature relevant to each field.  In addition, BMS students may participate in one of four Cross-Disciplinary Training Centers
