Yesterday (December 22) St. Jude announced it has received a unanimous vote of approval from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission for the opening of a new graduate school of biomedical sciences.
The St. Jude Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences will train the next generation of academic researchers in a one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary environment — one that brings together diverse scientific disciplines to work at the interface between basic and clinical research. St. Jude is home to more than 200 basic scientists and clinicians working across 21 academic departments. The graduate school is located in a custom-designed space within The Marlo Thomas Center for Global Education and Collaboration. St. Jude will welcome the inaugural class in fall 2017.
