Why you chose ISMMS?

During my interview and revisit, students genuinely looked happy. The amount of support the Graduate School gives their students is unmatched in the nation. The staff and faculty want their students to succeed. Sinai is also a very collaborative environment. There are so many labs and great PI’s to choose from that do a lot of amazing work together. Most of the publications coming from Sinai labs have multiple PI’s as co-authors.
