From the Dean

"Our faculty is comprised of accomplished scientists, providing students with a solid foundation to go on to award-winning research, further study and tremendous scientific careers.

One of the greatest advantages we provide our students is the opportunity to work side-by-side with professors. It’s an experience rare in the large research labs of urban universities where the major emphasis is on graduate programs."
