Coalition for Next Generation Life Science (CNGLS)

In April 2019, The University of Chicago joined the Coalition for Next Generation Life Science. The Coalition's goal is to provide a standardized approach to data collection and presentation with the aim of providing transparency for students considering bioscience careers. The data will also be useful in identifying areas for improvement in our educational efforts. The data that are being collected at 51 member institutions include:

  • Admissions selectivity
  • The median time it takes to complete a Ph.D. degree and the median time spent in postdoctoral training
  • The demographics of students and postdocs
  • The job outcomes of students 

These efforts are ongoing. The graphics below are an overview of our students, but the heart of the coalition's work is the ability to compare individual programs at each member institution. Individual program data may be found below.
