Biomedical Science M.S.

 

The Hood Graduate School Biomedical Science program is designed for the working professional with an undergraduate degree in cell biology, molecular biology or biochemistry who is ready to move up the career ladder. Tailored specifically to the demands of the region’s growing hub of life science research employers, it answers the call for relevant curriculum and evening classes.

Well connected, close to home

Hood’s close proximity to Fort Detrick and the burgeoning biotech corridor make it the convenient choice for the area’s large population of lab and science employees. Strategic location also affords the program strong relationships with top R&D firms, biotech and pharmaceutical companies, and nearby federal and private laboratories. In addition to highly qualified full-time faculty, students benefit from the knowledge of adjunct instructors who are leaders at NCI, USAMRIID and other major research organizations.

Meaningful courses

Coursework begins with molecular biology, biochemistry and bioinformatics, after which students select a track in molecular biology or microbiology. A regulatory compliance certificate program is ideal for those interested in regulatory oversight of research. Capstone project options include conducting laboratory research at the workplace or writing and defending a mock grant proposal. Classes are small and taught by instructors who know how to connect instruction to the real world.
