Welcome to the Graduate Division of Penn's School of Arts and Sciences.
The Graduate Division consists of some 33 graduate programs. Disciplinary strength is at the heart of Penn's excellence in research and graduate training. Equally important, however, is the spirit of interdisciplinary collaboration that pervades all of our programs.
A team of researchers led by Professors of Mathematics Tony Pantev and Ron Donagi have received a $10 million Simons Collaboration Grant to prove the Homological Mirror Symmetry Conjecture, one of mathematics’ outstanding open problems. Solving this has potential applications in fields from particle physics to geometry.
A new study by Eleni Katifori, assistant professor of physics and astronomy, and Henrik Ronellenfitsch, a postdoc in her lab, describes how a simple rule guides the development of the vasculature in both animals and plants.
