Program Director's Message

messageThe Master of Science in Biomedical Technology (MSBMT) program provides a foundation in the biomedical sciences and advanced training in specific biotechnologies. The goal of the MSBT program is to develop the technical expertise of the students in biomedical research methods and instrumentation of interest to them and/or their employers. The degree is intended to help graduates enter the field of biomedical technology at an advanced level or to further progress them in their career field.

The educational training sequence begins with an introductory foundation in basic human biology and tools for the professional scientist. Students then select technological areas of interest in which to expand their training and perform laboratory internships in academic, government, or corporate laboratories employing these methods.

spotlightWe have a number of educational programs that we can tailor to an individual student’s career goals. The disparities in treatments, and access to health care, between majority and minority populations are a source of unnecessary suffering for this nation and MSM is dedicated to making real progress toward solving the problem.

We are working to train the next generation of scientists to understand and attack this problem on many levels. I hope you will be one of those who commits fully to eliminating health disparities in this country and globally. We can help you develop your abilities and the tools you need to help tackle this and many other scientific problems.
