GGR graduates

More than 70 GGR students have received Ph.D. degrees.  Typical time to degree is between 5 and 6 years. Approximately 2/3 of GGR graduates go on to further postdoctoral research training, while the rest take immediate jobs in academia, government or private industry.  As of 2013, GGR graduates were employed as follows:

Academic Postdoc 31%
Faculty/Academic 17%
Med Training/Physician 17%
Industry Research/Regulation 17%
Government Research/Regulation 4%
Other Related Fields,
e.g., Scientific Writer, Patent Lawyer
11%
Unknown or Other 1%

BGS maintains a Linkedin Group for Biomedical Graduate Studies Alumni.  GGR alumni are listed below.
