We provide access to diversified fields including:
- Molecular Biology
- Chemical Biology
- Developmental Biology
- Cancer Research
A strong curriculum including training in fundamental biochemistry, molecular biology, biotechniques and more develops critical thinking skills that prepare our students for careers within universities and industry.
Biochemistry research is a key component of the program. In their first year of graduate study, students rotate through three research labs. By the end of the first year, students select a faculty member as their dissertation advisor and select a research topic for their PhD dissertation. Students take all required courses plus one elective. Visit the Course Catalog for more information.
