Meet Our Students
Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences attracts and recruits students with diverse backgrounds, interests, talents and ambitions. This is no accident. We welcome a world of backgrounds, a world of interests, a world of talents, and a world of ambitions from which students can learn and grow.
Because Mayo brings together experts in everything from chemistry and neurosurgery to animal care and nuclear magnetic resonance, you’re able to gain insight from people completely outside your own field. You’re able to get involved in and learn about things you’d not otherwise have the chance to experience. You’re invited to embark on your biomedical research training and engage in a rigorous and collaborative research environment that’s unlike anywhere else.

Students in each Ph.D. program track select a fellow student to represent them in the association.
