Ann Arbor is a unique community where myriad cultures converge to create a distinctive dynamic. It’s a great place to visit, and even better place to live. The city's reputation for comfortable living is backed by a variety of rankings and housing options. The University not only attracts esteemed faculty from around the world, but also hosts a wide range of cultural events promoting local and visiting artists, musicians, writers and celebrities.

As a PIBS student, you will have a life outside of the lab—and happily the U-M campus and Ann Arbor offer so much to explore.
