Research Schools

Studies at FGS are conducted within the framework of five research schools. Each school is headed by a director appointed by the FGS Dean.  Each director is assisted by a Board of Studies. The director of each school coordinates all activities in the relevant field of study. These include: guidelines for academic requirements, courses, laboratory work, admission of students, and evaluation of their progress in both research and studies.

To date, four of these have been endowed: the Solo Dwek and Maurizio Dwek Research School of Chemical Science, the Ekard Research School of Biological Science, the Lorry I. Lokey Research School of Biochemical Science, and the Moross Research School of Mathematics and Computer Science. The Research School of Physical Science has not yet been named.

These schools provide an extra boost to the students’ immersion into scientific research, enabling them to quickly become contributing members of research teams in their selected disciplines. The Research Schools’ key benefits for students include greater opportunities for personal development and independent research, grants and incentives, support for scientific services and information resources, travel grants to facilitate expanded contacts with the international research community, and greater exposure to world leaders in their fields through student-organized lectures, workshops, and conferences. Each Research School has a Board of Studies which coordinates all activities in the relevant discipline. These include guidelines for academic requirements, courses, admission of students, and evaluation of their research and studies.
