About Us

The School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth is proud to take a prominent role in shaping the future of our biomedical workforce by providing high quality education and training of our undergraduate, 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 competency-based graduate disciplines are designed with an integrated curriculum that provides students with a broad foundation of knowledge in the biomedical sciences while allowing the opportunity to individualize their training. 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.

SBS 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.

SBS is comprised of three academic departments including Physiology and Anatomy; Microbiology, Immunology and Genetics; and Pharmacology and Neuroscience. SBS Administration includes units for Education, Research, and Student Services and Admissions.
