The BGREAT office and the Office of Professional Development serve as resources for current and prospective graduate students in the biomedical sciences. We encourage students at all stages of their training to contact us to ask questions about the University of Minnesota, our graduate programs and our student services.

BGREAT supports graduate student academic and personal success with resources to foster their retention and graduation.
