Graduate Students

Our faculty welcome students to rotate through their labs and pursue work towards their graduate degree. HSCRB labs are home to graduate students who are passionate about understanding the intricacies of stem cell, developmental, and regenerative biology, and who go on to become leaders in the field.

Our students are registered in a variety of programs across the university. All Ph.D. students at Harvard are enrolled in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), which provides academic, financial, and personal support to graduate students throughout their careers at Harvard.

Integrated Life Sciences

Harvard’s graduate education philosophy promotes interdisciplinary collaboration in research. We encourage our students to explore a range of opportunities according to their research interests, no matter what Ph.D. program they join. Harvard Integrated Life Sciences (HILS), which comprises 14 Ph.D. programs and subject areas, provides an easy way for life-science students to find and apply to the right programs.

Applying to be a graduate student in HSCRB

Our graduate students are all advised by HSCRB faculty, but may be enrolled in one of many different programs (see below). If you are interested in stem cell and regenerative biology:

  1. Find out which of Harvard’s 14 life sciences Ph.D. programs would be right for you.
  2. Consider whether you would like to boost your research experience before applying.
  3. Apply to the program through GSAS.
  4. Each program will offer you an opportunity to select a lab, but the process and timing may differ.
