Scripps Research invites undergraduate students interested in biomedical research careers to learn about our Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURF) internship program and our top-10 ranked doctoral program, the Skaggs Graduate School of Chemical and Biological Sciences.
Scripps Research representatives will visit Oberlin College on to meet students, give a short presentation about our research and educational opportunities, followed by an informal question and answer session.
Scripps Research's doctoral program is an interdisciplinary program providing rigorous training in chemistry, chemical biology, biochemistry, neuroscience, immunology, structural biology/ biophysics, computational biology, molecular medicine and several others. Students have access to the entire curriculum and faculty affiliated with the program regardless of the faculty member’s department. This approach allows students to be broadly trained and emphasizes the creation of basic knowledge in the biosciences.
Launched in 1989, Scripps Research's doctoral program is ranked among the top graduate schools in the country according to several metrics, including U.S. News & World Report. The publication now ranks TSRI’s Graduate Program sixth overall in chemistry, fifth in the specialty of organic chemistry and second in the specialty of biochemistry. The program is also rated tenth overall in the biological sciences. Scripps Research can now boast more than 600 accomplished graduate alumni, who work in both academia and industry.
