Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School has matriculated over 169 students since our first class enrolled in 2006. We have a retention rate of 95 percent, and the average time to degree is 6 years. Our students have been very successful, publishing more than 400 papers and competing successfully for 51 independent graduate research fellowships including those from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. Directly after graduation, 57 percent of our alumni have pursued postdoctoral research training in academic laboratories, while 43 percent pursued non-research science-related careers such as biotech analyst, science writer, biotech firm manager, and consultant.
