IGC PhD program exposes students to a wide spectrum of different topics in the biological sciences. This reflects the diversity of research themes at our Institute: In House Groups and Research Fellows. Unlike traditional programs, students in our PhD program are not required (or even encouraged) to choose a laboratory or topic until they have had a semester to discover the Institute’s scientific opportunities, and discuss them with their peers, postdocs and PIs. We accept students from diverse backgrounds, including those outside life science disciplines, to join our international research community (28 distinct nationalities and counting).
