New graduate training program in biomedical sciences

The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine recently launched XDBio, a cross-disciplinary graduate training program in biomedical sciences designed to provide individualized training and to facilitate interdisciplinary research bridging biology, engineering, computer science, physics, chemistry, and medicine.

XDBio students will experience a flexible educational structure with a personalized curriculum guided by each student's individual research interests, prior course work, and future goals. XDBio students will have access to a rich offering of courses from across the university and benefit from a mentoring structure that guides independent, interdisciplinary discovery.

Students will find themselves embedded in the rigorous, collaborative environment that characterizes Johns Hopkins Medicine and will engage faculty and the broader Hopkins community regularly through research presentations, journal clubs, retreats, and one-on-one and small group interactions.
