North Carolina Central University in Durham has received approval from the University of North Carolina Board of Governors to establish a Ph.D program in integrated biosciences. The program will offer two tracks, biomedical sciences and pharmaceutical sciences. Some 32 faculty members will be involved in the doctoral program.

The university plans to enroll its first students in the program in the fall of 2012 and hopes the first doctoral degrees will be awarded four years later. North Carolina Central University has not awarded a doctoral degree in over 45 years. The university hopes to have 20 students enrolled in the new doctoral program within five years.
