This program trains students to discover the underlying molecular mechanisms that are central to all cellular pathways, and determine how defects result in disease.

Program Description

By conducting independent research under the mentorship of a faculty advisor, the Graduate Program in Biochemistry prepares students for research-oriented careers in the biomedical sciences. Students who apply to this program are admitted via Molecular Biosciences, a first-year umbrella program that provides a core curriculum, as well as the opportunity to sample laboratories through rotations. Students tailor their training through selection of additional courses from a variety of disciplines.


Upon admission, students receive fellowship support for a full year, including tuition and health insurance coverage. Funding is assured for the duration of PhD training provided students are making progress and in good academic standing.
