Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree in iBio?

I’m interested in Biology and the iBio program has students who work in a variety of fields, which will provide an opportunity to know and talk to cohorts in a very different field.

Why or what do you love about the program?

No rotation, which will save a lot of time. Flexible course requirement.
