Biographical / Historical

The Tufts Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences was first established as the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences by the trustees of Tufts University on July 1, 1980 through the gifts of the late Dr. Arthur M. Sackler, Dr. Mortimer D. Sackler and Dr. Raymond R. Sackler. Their vision was matched by that of current president of Tufts University, Jean Mayer, who saw integration across all medical fields as crucial for advancement of health. As a result of the generosity of the Sackler brothers, six fledging graduate programs at Tufts University School of Medicine were given a home. These programs: Biochemistry, Immunology, Molecular Biology and Microbiology, Anatomy, Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, and Physiology; and their faculty of 70 provided the foundation on which our school is built. These faculty and their students were a part of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences prior to the founding of the Sackler School. In December 2019, the name of the School was changed from the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences to the Tufts Graduate of Biomedical Sciences due to role of the Sackler family and their company, Purdue Pharma, in the opioid epidemic.
