  • contribute to ongoing research into current health issues

Support for Your Interests

“The BS/MS is a great way to be involved in research while figuring out if a PhD program is right for me.”
Kate Evely
BS/MS candidate

During the MS component of your studies, we will match you with outstanding, internationally recognized mentors to support your research interests. In addition to faculty in our department, you may conduct interdisciplinary research with faculty at the world-renowned Roswell Park Cancer Institute or in other departments on campus.

We fully fund student travel to major pharmacology conferences where you can present your research. We encourage our students to publish and we set up opportunities for you to meet researchers early in your studies, initiating professional connections to support your long-term goals.

Career Advantage

At the end of the BS/MS program, you will have completed substantial graduate coursework, giving you a competitive advantage in applying to PhD programs and a strong foundation for advanced graduate research.

Our highly competitive degrees also prepare students for MD and dental programs and positions in pharmaceutical and biotech companies as well as medical patent law.
