The 11 PhD Programs
The Biomedical Sciences Training Program is an interdisciplinary PhD umbrella program designed for student success. Every student is given the chance to explore our eleven different biomedical science PhD programs and choose the department that best suits their interests.
As a Biochemistry student, you will work alongside faculty who use a wide range of techniques and systems to address fundamental biological and disease-related questions.
As a Cell Biology student, you will receive training opportunities as research science professionals through formal coursework, the conduct of original research in the laboratory of your selected mentor.
As a student of the Genetics and Genome program, you will be trained as the next generation of geneticists who have extensive knowledge and expertise in modern genetics, genomics and biomedical research.
As a Molecular Biology & Microbiology student, you will participate in formal and informal seminars, coursework, a research qualifying examination, and the Ph.D. thesis.
As a Molecular Virology student, you will participate in formal and informal seminars, coursework, a research qualifying examination, and the Ph.D. thesis.
As a Neuroscience student, you will train in neurobiology with a strong emphasis on cellular and molecular mechanisms provided through a combination of research, course work, and seminars.
As a Nutrition student you will be trained in the various approaches that are required for the study of metabolism and nutrient homeostasis by coursework, research, and weekly seminars.
As a Pathology student, you will be provided with extensive opportunities for graduate training in experimental pathology, immunology and cancer biology leading to the PhD (or MD/PhD) degree.
As a Pharmacology student, you will train in the tradition of excellence in basic science research. Several scholars have continued this tradition through nationally and internationally recognized contributions to biomedical sciences.
As a Physiology and Biophysics student, you will train to understand the mechanisms that control normal function of biological processes, translating that knowledge into new approaches and cures for disease.
As a Systems Biology and Bioinformatics student, you will train to generate and analyze experimental data for biomedical research and to develop physical or computational models of the molecular components that drive the behavior of a biological system.
