  • CV (Curriculum Vitae)
  • Publication reprints/preprints
  • Contact information for three references

PhD Students

UNC is a great place to be a graduate student.  Working in a biomedical science lab with a model organism focus provides you with the tools and training you’ll need to excel.  All biomedical science labs at UNC recruit students through a common entry program, the  the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program (BBSP). Students admitted through the BBSP typically complete three ten-week rotations in the first year, providing a variety of research experiences that allow students and potential graduate advisors to evaluate whether a given lab is a good fit. Information regarding the program and application procedures is found on the BBSP website.  The Peifer lab’s training record and the accomplishments of past students can be found under the Alumni menu.
