Stanford isn't about good science.
It's about the very best,
the most outstanding science.
I don't think we can overemphasize
the importance of the relationship
between mentors in basic science and
experimental science and their trainees.
Stanford has a
world wide reputation of
conversations in science.
Every day, I witness the exciting, collaborative science in Stanford's labs. It is especially rewarding that graduate students lead these discoveries, flourishing under the training and mentoring of our faculty.
Our 13 Home Programs form a collaborative network that encourages creative thinking, interdisciplinary collaboration, and high-stakes, high-reward research. Students get the best of both worlds: the flexibility of a larger program with the direct mentorship fostered by a smaller setting. Each Home Program provides foundational training with a supportive group of peers and faculty. Students are encouraged to tailor their rotations and education throughout the Biosciences and beyond. At Stanford, we empower students to broaden their horizons, discover their passion, and become leaders and innovators in their career of choice.
