Ph.D. Program

Students enter the Biochemistry Ph.D. program by applying to the Biomedical Sciences Training Program (BSTP). Applications should be submitted in late autumn or early winter for an anticipated enrollment the following July. Preference is given to applications received before December 1st. Idea candidates will possess strong grades, GRE scores, and have completed undergraduate courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry.

To apply students should submit a completed application form, three letters of recommendation, official undergraduate transcript(s), official GRE scores (Verbal, Quantitative and Analytical) and, when applicable, official TOEFL scores.

Students enter the Biochemistry program through the Biomedical Sciences Training Program, which encompasses several departments within the School of Medicine and offers students an opportunity to rotate through a larger number of research laboratories. If you wish to apply only to the Biochemistry PhD program, select Biochemistry in the "Preferred Program of Interest (PPI)" menu. Please read about PPIs in the BSTP's FAQ page.

Online applications: Online applications are submitted through the site for the School of Graduate Studies. You should select Biomedical Sciences Training Program in the "Academic Program" menu once you start the application.
