Open Program

  • The open program at Vilcek allows for flexibility. Students do not select a training track until the end of their 1st year, after completing two to three rotations in labs of their choice.
  • We offer a variety of training tracks, grouped into clusters including Genes, Cells & Organisms; Mechanisms of Disease; Microbiology, Immunology, & Infectious Disease; Neuroscience & Physiology; and Quantitative Biology.
  • Our open program allows students the chance to explore different research areas before selecting their training program and thesis advisor.
