Giving to make lives better

Building a LEGACY for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

Within the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, our nationally recognized  researchers are devoted to finding cures to some of the most vexing problems facing our society. As they conduct their research every day, many of them are also mentoring a next generation of scientists – our students. It is through this educational process that we ensure a continuation of expertise in research, ensuring that our students have the most skilled and respected scientists as their teachers.

We know that it is only through continued support from individuals, foundations, and corporations, will we be able to continue to offer hope, to all who truly believe in the wonders and value of science.

Never Give Up on Your Dream

Jason Chandrapal

Jason Chandrapal always knew that a career in medicine was for him. “I was that kid who would dress up as in scrubs on Halloween and when people would jokingly ask me what I was and I would say that I wasn’t just a doctor but a surgeon.” He is currently in Salt Lake City for a research fellowship but will soon be starting a residency position in Urology at Duke University Medical Center this summer.
