Training Opportunities

At IQ, we are teaching convergent science at all levels, from undergrad to post-doctoral fellows. Our mission is to have a dramatic impact on how we educate students across disciplines, teaching young scientists to think with engineering principles as they address biomedical problems.

IQ faculty train students to think about how different fields and different disciplines come together for one common goal – changing the way we think about health care. Students will leave MSU being the best-trained in the country in convergent science and biomedical engineering.

The laboratories in the IQ building have an open format so people from all levels and disciplines work in the same lab purposefully colliding into each other every day. Students across the spectrum work side-by-side with scientists from all areas to help drive innovation and research.
