The College of Graduate Studies at MUSC is committed to the graduate training of biomedical research scientists, providing them with the critical thinking skills and experimental expertise that prepare them to work at the interface of basic biological sciences and human health and disease. We believe that the single most important experience a university can offer is the opportunity to make exciting new discoveries through research.
