Message from the Dean
The Graduate College of Biomedical Sciences (GCBS) supports the WesternU mission by educating and training future researchers and future health care professionals. Most importantly we encourage critical thinking and intellectual curiosity.
Our faculty are accomplished in research, whether basic science bench research, translational research, or clinical research. They are committed to both creating new knowledge and sharing that knowledge through classroom teaching and laboratory mentoring.
We look forward to continuing to grow and adapt as a College to effectively meet our students’ needs.
