Van Andel Institute Graduate School is a small graduate school that offers one PhD program in molecular and cellular biology located in the Van Andel Institute in Grand Rapids, MI (3 hours from Chicago, 2 hours from Detroit). We are a small accredited program in an independent research institute that is designed for hands-on learners interested in using the latest techniques across fields and disease areas, including epigenetics, neurodegenerative disease, metabolism and nutritional programming, structural biology and cancer. Our small cohorts of 12-15 students are excellent learning opportunities especially for students looking for a tight knit collaborative learning environment. All of our students are fully funded through their entire PhD program with a generous stipend of $36,000 annually, heath/dental/vision insurance, a brand new laptop and $2000 travel allowance for scientific events.
