New Doctoral Program

There is a brand new doctoral program that allows high-achieving students to perform their thesis work with world-renowned researchers within our institution. The program is unique in that it is designed for students who have demonstrated research potential in their undergrad to complete their PhD in 5 years with a heavy translational component that puts a human face on the coursework – they will be pairing each student with a clinician so that they can follow St. Jude patients throughout their first year. Applications are now being accepted for our PhD in Biomedical Sciences program (inaugural class will begin Fall 2017), and they would love to come to University of Mississippi to recruit students interested in graduate studies in the biomedical sciences. If you’re interested, you can contact Racquel (the assistant dean of the Graduate School at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital)
