The Department of Biomedical Sciences is the central hub of basic, pre-clinical research at the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine. Our faculty represent a diverse set of interests, ranging from cell biology to neuroscience and from cancer to sleep. Through our partnerships with the greater WSU campus, the Department provides research opportunities to graduate students enrolled in participating Ph.D. programs.


Our mission is to promote and support basic research in biomedical sciences at the highest level. To this end, we recruit talented scientists with interests in cell biology and neuroscience, and provide them with state-of-the art laboratories and core science facilities.
