About Us

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) at UNT Health Science Center is proud to be celebrating its 25th anniversary. Today, the GSBS continues its prominent role in shaping the future of our biomedical workforce by providing high quality education and training of our PhD and Masters students to become the educators, researchers and professionals of tomorrow. Mentoring, teaching and training our students are our talented and dedicated faculty, who use state-of-the-art technology and training methods to tackle such major biomedical problems as cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Our graduate programs are designed with an integrated curriculum at its core that provides students with a broad foundation of knowledge in the biomedical sciences. Our curriculum promotes a team approach to solving complex problems that we believe is essential to better understand the biological principles that govern health and disease. These didactic and problem-based learning experiences, together with the ‘hands-on’ training that our students gain, are equipping our students with the tools to undertake the challenges of tomorrow.

The GSBS has also been nationally recognized for achieving a well-balanced representation of diverse populations that is reflective of our society. By studying in this environment, we believe our students are not only better prepared to immerse themselves into the “real world” environment, but will have been inculcated with the motivation to apply their training in a way that benefits us all, across the spectrum of age, gender and ethnicity.

In October of 2017 our school undertook a mass reorganization while at the same time making a change in leadership. As a result, three academic departments were created along with three areas of focus within GSBS Administration which include Education, Student Services, and Research.
