The Lankenau Institute for Medical Research
The purpose of the PCOM/LIMR Graduate Assistantship Program is to allow MS students accepted into the Research Track degree candidacy in the PCOM Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences to conduct their thesis research with a mentor from LIMR. These students will be Research Assistants at LIMR, and will conduct their thesis research at a LIMR Laboratory. Students must meet all degree requirements, as detailed in the PCOM Graduate Handbook. The thesis research portion of the student’s degree will be on average a period of 18 months in a LIMR laboratory, during which time the student will work full time on his/her thesis project. The thesis research culminates in preparation and defense of a written thesis.
Research Assistants may work with any of the members of the LIMR resident faculty. Visit our faculty pages to learn more about their individual research programs.
