A new GSBSE admissions track with first year rotations at the University of Maine


GSBSE @ UM is new admissions track into the UMaine GSBSE’s PhD in Biomedical Science and PhD in Biomedical Engineering that preserves GSBSE’s hallmark first year laboratory rotations within laboratories at UMaine, allowing students in the track to more deeply explore the research in a range of labs and develop their academic networks before committing to a home laboratory for the duration of the program. 

The GSBSE @ UM connects affiliated faculty from over a dozen departments across the University and challenges students to make transdisciplinary connections. GSBSE affiliated faculty at UMaine receive research funding from a variety of external sources, including the NIH, NSF, FDA, and private industry. 

In addition to its role as the degree granting institution of the GSBSE, UMaine is home to over 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students across over 200 degree programs and is the flagship campus of the University of Maine System. UMaine is also home to Maine’s only Division I athletics program
