The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers a PhD under the umbrella of the BioMedical Sciences (BMS) Graduate Program (https://www.etsu.edu/com/grad/) at ETSU. After completion of the core BMS Courses, students rotate through different laboratories to find the best fit for their interests, while completing coursework tailored to the unique features of their research projects. Along with the lab director, a dissertation committee composed of 3-5 other faculty is formed to assist in the completion of the qualifying examination, the preparation of the dissertation document, and the defense of the thesis. Although a new concentration within the BMS program, Pharmaceutical Sciences already has four outstanding PhD candidates working in our laboratories as detailed below. Three of the students already have publications from their work and all are pioneering a pathway of success for future students to follow.
