    For over 100 years, biomedical science has been The Rockefeller University’s singular priority. Founded in 1901 by John D. Rockefeller as The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, it was the first institution in the United States devoted solely to understanding the causes of disease. Today, renamed The Rockefeller University, it is one of the foremost research centers in the world, with a world-class faculty.

    The graduate program admitted its first students in 1955, and since then more than 1,200 scientists have received degrees from Rockefeller. As a Rockefeller graduate student, you will be part of a diverse community of over 2,000, including students, postdocs, faculty, and administrative staff. Though Rockefeller is a small school, our location adjacent to Weill Cornell Medical College, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center puts us at an epicenter of scientific activity. Our students truly have the best of both worlds: a personal, highly flexible training program and access to a broad range of collaborators and resources.
