The Bradley Advantage

Bradley’s research and development program gives you a foundation in biology and applies that to creative problem solving and research. Beyond the biology base, you learn chemistry, experimental design and research techniques. Courses allow you to learn research approaches across the field of biomedical science. Additionally, you complete a yearlong research project as a senior that will make you attractive to employers seeking research staff. The research and development program is one of four biomedical science degrees. You also can pursue a general degree or tracks in pre-veterinary sciencepre-med or research and development. With these options, you have flexibility to tailor the program to your career goals.

Successful Outcomes

In recent years, almost all students found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. They're working at places such as DuPont Pioneer, Eli Lilly and Co., Endotronix and the University of Colorado Cancer Center.
