Weill Cornell, together with Cornell University and nine other U.S. institutions, is a founding member of the Coalition for Next Generation Life Science (CNGLS). The mission of CNGLS is to provide life science trainees with clear, standardized data on graduate school and postdoctoral fellow demographics and outcome metrics. Such transparency is expected to aid prospective trainees as they make career and institution choices.
The other CNGLS institutions are Johns Hopkins University; Duke University; the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center; the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; the University of California, San Francisco; the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; University of Maryland, Baltimore County; the University of Pennsylvania; and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The first set of statistical reports, launched Feb 1, 2018 and included below, provides information on graduate school admission and enrollment, graduate student demographics, graduation rates, and the median time spent in graduate school before earning a doctorate. Information on the timing and commitments of CNGLS institutions for publication of additional data related to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows can be found here.
