  • The exhilarating pace of discovery in the Life Sciences and the complex problems ahead demand new approaches that cut across traditional disciplines. The interactive and stimulating environment of Brandeis University fosters thinking "outside the box," where biophysical and genetic approaches merge with the tools of biochemistry and molecular biology to investigate the fundamental processes of life. The graduate programs are committed to interdisciplinary training, spanning several academic departments as well as four research centers.
