PhD program in Integrated Biology Medicine (IBM)

Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore
Campus Full time 4 - 5 years August 2017 Singapore

The program distinguishes itself from others by emphasizing training in translational bioscience, preparing cutting edge researchers to take their research findings from "bench to bedside." [+]

Best PhD Degrees in Asia 2017. PhD program in Integrated Biology Medicine (IBM) Duke-NUS launched its inaugural PhD program in Integrated Biology and Medicine (IBM) in August 2010. The program distinguishes itself from others in Singapore and abroad by emphasizing training in translational bioscience, preparing cutting edge researchers to take their research findings from "bench to bedside." Students will complete their advanced training in one of Duke-NUS’s five Signature Research Programs: Cancer and Stem Cell Biology Emerging Infectious Diseases Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders Health Services and Systems Research The degree, which will take on average 4 to 5 years to complete, culminates with the development of a written thesis and a successful oral dissertation defense. Like the Duke-NUS MD program, the Ph.D. core course incorporates a novel education strategy which rapidly transitions students to a mode of learning better suited for a lifelong career in biomedical research. From the first week in the program, students are introduced to scientific literature searches, evaluation and critique of seminal scientific papers. The core curriculum is delivered in a small group collaborative learning environment that reinforces critical thinking and public debate. Curriculum Year 1 – required coursework and lab rotations All PhD candidates participate in the 15-week core course called “Molecules to Medicines” during their first semester of the PhD program. This course introduces students to translational research, and provides training on experimental models, methods and mechanisms that drive current investigations into human disease. Scientific ethics training is woven throughout the course. This course is taught by a range of Duke-NUS faculty and staff who introduce their expertise to the students. This is not a lecture course, but an interactive learning course that requires significant preparation and participation. Students will also conduct two 8-week lab rotations from among the Duke-NUS Signature Research Programs. Mentors for the rotations must be regular ranked faculty and be on the approved mentor list. These rotations are structured to provide students with first hand exposure to the labs where they may choose to conduct their PhD research. At the end of the rotations, students will be asked to commit to a thesis mentor and a specialty discipline. During the second semester, students may continue with coursework and/or begin primary research. Specifics will be dependent on the specialty areas students choose to pursue. Year 2 – developing a thesis and qualifying exam At the start of the second year, students will work toward developing their thesis projects. Students may or may not continue with formal coursework, however, all PhD candidates are expected to actively participate in Duke-NUS research seminars and journal clubs sponsored by their Signature Research Programs. These seminars provide students with a forum to give oral presentations, evaluate literature, analyze competitive science, and share ideas on major breakthroughs and future directions for their research field. This activity provides a critical foundation for a career in translational research. Current Duke-NUS Research Seminars are found here. In the first semester, all PhD students take a qualifying or preliminary exam. Successful students will defend a mock grant proposal, providing the faculty with the opportunity to evaluate their fundamental knowledge and ability to purse hypothesis-based research. Years 3 & 4 – research and thesis After the qualifying exam, the remainder of the PhD training consists of the execution of the thesis project and regular participation in Research Seminars and Journal Clubs. The thesis mentor will guide the student and act as the chair of the student’s Graduate Thesis Advisory Committee. Success of the thesis will be judged by the publication or anticipated publication of two quality first author papers, with the emphasis being on quality. Thesis Mentors The IBM degree is a research-intensive program which culminates with the defense of a dissertation and the publication of the student’s findings. Research is done under the direction of an approved faculty mentor, who serves as chair of the student’s dissertation committee and provides financial support for research activities. Students will undergo the mentor selection process toward the end of their first semester of the program. Tuition, Fees & Fellowships All accepted students will be provided with a stipend and fellowship to cover the full cost of tuition and fees.
