This blog is created by the faculty and students of the Vanderbilt Biomedical Graduate programs (IGP and QCB) in order to help young scientists navigate the unique challenges of searching for and beginning graduate school. We hope you find it helpful!

If you want to explore the life of a graduate student, follow our Twitter page here.

Feel free to navigate our Menu at the top of the page to see our site content. You can also look at the categories of posts on the right sidebar.

Recently, I’ve added a new series, “Why Study That?” where you can read about the real reasons and personal journeys that have led our faculty to their field of study. Check out this series, updated monthly, to see that there is no single path to science!
