Biomaterials Science PhD Training Program Curriculum
The curriculum of the Biomaterials Science PhD Training Program at NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences consists of coursework, seminars and meetings, lab rotations, a qualifying exam, and a major research project.
Current students can download forms for the qualifying exam, committee meeting reports, and important information on thesis defense and graduation by logging into our student community with their Kerberos ID.
In addition to courses taken by all PhD candidates at Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, biomaterial sciences program candidates may take the following courses.
Biomaterials: Tissue Interface I
Biomaterials: Tissue Interface II
Metal and Ceramic Biomaterials
Polymers and Biopolymers
Principles in Biomaterials Science
For more information and course syllabi, see our PhD course catalog.
Seminars and Meetings
In the weekly Biomaterials Seminar Series, faculty cover various aspects of the materials used in clinical medicine. These include restorative materials, alloys, cements, impression materials, gypsum products, and cell–biomaterial interactions.
In the weekly Biomaterials Works in Progress Series, which students can learn more about by logging into our student community with their Kerberos ID, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers present their current research. After each meeting, presenters receive feedback from faculty on their research direction and presentation style.
