1. Harvard University

Ranked as the top American college that has biomedical engineering, humoan evolutionary biology and neurobiology. Postgraduates are encouraged to pursue postgraduate work in medical school or scientific research. Times Higher Education has it that other students have even went into business and advocacy groups.

Another school with specialised departments. The famoous evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins, is connected with the school. They offer degrees in the science and clinical divisions of the university. The graduates are known to have high profile careers.

4. Stanford University

A University known for its science and innovation contributions. Specifically its developments in the Silicon Valley. But it is also a leading school when it comes to life science research. The school offers biochemistry, biophysics and a host of other subdisciplines.

5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology

MIT also a school known for its life sciences courses. Offering minor and major degrees, courses range from biological engineering to "Science, Technology and Society."
