Message from Dr. Schneider

David Schneider. David Schneider, Ph.D.
Associate Dean for Graduate Biomedical Sciences.
Welcome to the Graduate Biomedical Sciences Program (GBS) at UAB! Thank you for taking time to learn about our program.

In the 21st century, biomedical research must answer pressing questions about human health and the world with which we interact. Modern biomedical researchers have access to powerful technology and analytical methods to push for deeper and more precise answers to these key questions every day.

People are born curious. We want to know how and why life “works.”  We are not born, however, with an inherent ability to carefully and rigorously define the intricate processes that drive cell function or growth. Biomedical research is more complex today than ever, and the pace of learning continues to accelerate. The GBS program is dedicated to nurturing the curiosity of our trainees and equipping them with the skills to drive biomedical research forward in our state, in our country, and beyond.

If you are curious and you want to discover more about yourself and the world around you, please consider the GBS training program at UAB. We are driving toward discovery every day. Join us for the journey!
