PhD Student Life


"Awesome Science and a Great Community:" Inside Life at GSK

Our school is located on Manhattan's Upper East Side, in the heart of a thriving biomedical research community.

Gerstner Sloan Kettering students work hard but also have lots of fun together — in the classroom or lab as well as while enjoying happy hour, brunch, picnics, and other activities. Meet a few of our students and hear them talk about the special bonds that form between classmates.
