The College of Graduate Studies provides you with maximum choice in selecting a research specialization, giving you a full year to choose the topic and mentor for your dissertation research.

During that year, you learn about research at SUNY Upstate through faculty presentations and lab rotations, and study a core curriculum designed to give you a broad-based education in the biomedical sciences.

Students start taking advanced courses in the spring of their first year and begin work on their dissertation projects at the start of the second year.

Our students present their research findings at local, national and international meetings, and publish their work in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
