Biomedical Science Program launches

The Board of Regents, State of Iowa, approved a request to revise and restructure bioscience-related programs into a new consortium degree-granting program at the University of Iowa—the Biomedical Science Program. The new program is an interdisciplinary graduate program with a dual reporting relationship to the UI Graduate College and UI Carver College of Medicine. The program will accept its first students for the fall 2017 semester and will include eight of the 11 current bioscience-related PhD programs.
