  • The diverse area of research was one of the most important factors I considered in choosing the Biomedical Sciences PhD program at AU. AU has several specialized centers, including the Cancer Center, Biotechnology & Genomic Medicine Center, Immunology center, and Vision Discovery Institute, where students can interact with highly skilled researchers.

  • Because the program is research-driven and impacts the knowledge of young future research scientists, it puts you at the forefront of the ever-evolving field of science and gives you the opportunity to rotate in different labs. It is also part of a prestigious institution that places a high value on inclusivity and belongingness. I never feel left out.

  • I studied medicine and became interested in pursuing a career in research, specifically in neuroscience research. During the interview, I got an impressive impression of AU biomedical Sciences and neuroscience research which made me choose AU for PhD finally.

  • The cohort model and class size are conducive to forming close relationships with many of your classmates. My favorite memories have been chatting with classmates in the lounge and spending time together outside of school hours.
