Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

The Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UMass Chan Medical School is a faculty-initiated and faculty-organized school with a mission to train the next generation of science leaders, teachers and advocates. In doing so, our students:
•    engage in leading edge research advancing our understanding of human biology in health and disease
•    translate discovery into treatments that transform the practice of medicine
•    build the knowledge, skills, professional network and experience to reach their career objectives

The faculty are nationally and internationally renowned for their research, as demonstrated by their prominence on national committees, boards and review panels, by their service as editors and reviewers for scientific journals, and by their numerous publications in scientific and educational journals. The faculty have created a transformative research education experience based on problem-solving, inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches to biomedical research that strongly emphasize the scientific method, quantitative approaches to science, the development of strong communication skills and self- and team-directed approaches to learning, research and professional development.  As a result, the research undertaken by our students and faculty spans the full spectrum of contemporary health sciences from the study of single, isolated molecules to population genomics and health outcomes.

The faculty in the Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences are appointed within fifteen academic programs.  The faculty hold their primary academic appointment in the T.H. Chan School or Medicine or  the Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing.

Below is a searchable database of faculty with appointments in one or more of the three schools: T.H. Chan School of Medicine, Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing.
