Program Overview

Program Description:

The mission of KGI’s PhD in Applied Life Sciences is to endow a select group of students with expertise in research areas relevant to applied bioscience, with the ability to use interdisciplinary tools and approaches to solve problems, and with the motivation to translate knowledge to beneficial applications to advance new horizons in the applied biosciences. The program is designed to educate technically competent, broadly trained, highly original scientists, and will prepare students for research and development positions in a variety of bioscience industrial or academic environments.

Students complete the MBS program in two years; completion of the PhD portion of the program is anticipated to require an additional three years of full-time study, with the possibility for extension depending on the particular research project. Students will be encouraged to enter the PhD portion in June following graduation from the MBS program.
