What to Expect
Our Molecular Therapeutics Training Program in pharmacology is a part of the Biomedical Sciences Training Program, which offers 11 different PhD options under the biomedical sciences umbrella. Thanks to our interdisciplinary approach, you can specialize in pharmacology while also taking electives in related topics. Try courses on topics such as the mechanisms of drug resistance, protein biophysics, and cancer biology and therapeutics in addition to core coursework in cell and molecular biology.
Then, test your research ability with a thesis project on a topic of your choice. You’ll use your findings to form first-author publications for award-winning journals (like many of our students have done).
