The UW School of Veterinary Medicine’s Comparative Biomedical Sciences (CBMS) Graduate Degree Program provides a path to an M.S. or Ph.D. degree through exceptional graduate research training in core areas of animal and human health.
The program’s areas of focus include the following:
|Immunology||Pharmacology and toxicology|
|Molecular and cellular biology||Virology|
Seventy-five faculty members serve as trainers in the program. They are housed in the school’s four academic departments as well as a diverse number of University of Wisconsin-Madison departments, including
|Human Oncology||Medical Microbiology and Immunology|
With these internationally recognized professors and an integrative structure, the program provides outstanding and unique research opportunities for students. In addition, UW-Madison is consistently ranked as one of the best 10 graduate institutions in the nation, so the CBMS program draw its strength from the superb research and teaching of its faculty as well as the outstanding reputation of the UW-Madison campus.
Approximately 55 students, most of whom are Ph.D. candidates, are currently enrolled in the CBMS program. Research strategies and academic curricula are tailored to the specific needs of each individual student. Graduates from the program are highly successful in the biotechnology industry and at top-ranked research institutions in the United States and abroad.
