Options for doctorate degrees in biotechnology within the United States are limited. We only have a handful of schools in our database offering the program.

However, the U.S. is regionally covered. There are schools on the east coast, in the south, and in the west. Folks living in the Midwest can easily travel. Most people seeking their doctorate degree are open to move, and most are academics or professors that end up teaching and researching biotechnology.
