Purdue University Interdisciplinary Life Science Ph.D. Program (PULSe) is hosting a Fall Open House on Friday, November 2, 2018.
PULSe provides opportunities for an interdisciplinary graduate experience in basic life sciences for Ph.D. students. The program offers: flexibility through first-year laboratory rotations; team experience within interdisciplinary cohorts; world-class facilities and resources; and diverse research opportunities across multiple disciplines. PULSe is an interdisciplinary program that includes faculty members from 27 different departments/programs at Purdue. There are currently over 190 faculty in PULSe.
The Open House’s activities will include:
- A “Meet the Faculty” Session – at the session, a panel of faculty members representing the PULSe Training Groups will give an informal presentation on their group and the research associated with it after which each faculty member will be available to speak one-on-one with interested students;
- Student Lab Tours – current PULSe students will escort small groups of prospective students to and around their labs;
- Lunch with Students – A number of current PULSe students meet with open house attendees over a meal in the Purdue Memorial Union to discuss their personal experiences with the PULSe program and at Purdue; and
- A Facilities Tour – Attendees tour the Bindley Bioscience and Birck Nanotechnology Centers to see some of the research resources and facilities available at Purdue!
The event will start at 9:00am and end at 3:00pm at Purdue’s main campus in West Lafayette, Indiana. More information about the program and the Fall Open House is available on their respective websites.
