UCLA Graduate Programs in Bioscience is a consortium of 10 home areas and their affiliated PhD programs, organized to provide the best possible research training and professional development for graduate students pursuing PhDs in the life and biomedical sciences. Additionally, the Office of Bioscience Postdoctoral Affairs serves postdoctoral scholars in the David Geffen School of Medicine and biosciences-affiliated disciplines throughout UCLA - providing resources and training for bioscientists across many professional areas.
“Nothing can prepare future leaders for every challenge they’ll face while exploring the dynamic relationship between science, nature, and human health. We strive to instill in our research trainees and physician-scientists the kind of thirst for perpetual learning that will take them further in their careers than any one skill or degree.”
