Explore the specifics of two strong PhD programs

The rapid pace of scientific discovery and the development of new technologies offer students an unparalleled freedom to engage in interdisciplinary research. In recognition of these emerging opportunities, the graduate programs in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics (BMBB) and in Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology and Genetics (MCDBG) have merged their first year graduate training into a combined Graduate Studies in Molecular, Cellular and Structural Biology (MCSB) curriculum.

These two exceptionally strong graduate programs provide advanced training in disciplines leading to a Ph.D. degree either in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics or in Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology and Genetics. Upon application, students are considered for both programs and when admitted, are able to explore the offerings of both programs for the first academic year before deciding on which one to enter. Thus, students make their major academic career choice once they have had a close look at the array of opportunities open to them.
