A new Certificate Program in Therapeutics

The Therapeutics Graduate Program is a new HILS-wide certificate program that provides a rigorous curriculum and builds a community of PhD students and faculty with common interests in Therapeutic Sciences.  The rationale behind the new certificate program is to offer to a subset of our Ph.D. trainees rigorous multidisciplinary training in the sciences relevant to identifying and developing novel diagnostics and therapeutics, and in understanding and elucidating mechanisms of drug action, understanding clinical failures, developing compounds and applying them in preclinical and clinical studies, and understanding the societal implications and impact of these activities. This training will provide students with a well-rounded understanding so that they can examine a therapeutic problem from every angle. Importantly, the training the students receive will also include intensive, hands-on internship experiences. The ultimate purpose of the program is to prepare Ph.D. students for careers in academic, industrial and clinical settings.
