Welcome Incoming Ph.D. Students!
The Department of Biological Sciences welcomes 10 new Ph.D. students for the start of the 2020-2021 academic year. Over the next few weeks, our ten incoming Ph.D. students will begin the first of three lab rotations, where they learn more about the department's faculty and research. After completing their lab rotations, they will select a research advisor, marking the beginning of their doctoral research at Carnegie Mellon University.
During these unprecented times, new students have faced numerous challenges and moments of uncertainty. While Mellon Institute and the campus as a whole will look and feel different during the start of their Ph.D. journey, the transformative educational opportunity at CMU remains the same and these future scientists are poised to make new discoveries and breakthroughs built upon the foundation of their previous coursework and their time ahead in the Department of Biological Sciences.
Below is a list of all of our incoming Ph.D. students. Best of luck to all of them and a warm welcome to the Department of Biological Sciences at CMU!
