Coordinated Doctoral Programs in Biomedical Sciences

Biochemistry, Molecular Biophysics and Structural Biology

Research in the Biochemistry, Molecular Biophysics and Structural Biology aims to understand the structure-function relationships at the level of three-dimensional structures.

Biomedical Informatics

Students in the Biomedical Informatics Program learn the technical, theoretical, and practical lessons they will need to change medicine for the better. 

Cancer Biology

The Cancer Biology Program covers all areas of cancer research, including cancer genetics, stem cells, tumor microenvironment, hematopoietic malignancies, tumor immunology, systems analyses, among others. 

Cell and Molecular Biology

The Cell and Molecular Biology offers basic, translational and clinical research promoting the study of basic science and biomedical importance from a mechanistic perspective.

Cellular and Molecular Physiology & Biophysics

The Cellular and Molecular Physiology & Biophysics Program provides a stimulating and supportive environment enabling graduate students to acquire fundamental training in physiology, cellular and molecular biology, and biophysics.

Genetics and Development

The Genetics and Development Program provides a broad, solid education in genetics and animal development, with rigorous training in critical thinking and experimental design. 

Microbiology and Immunology

The Microbiology and Immunology Program is one of the specialized research and training areas within the Integrated Program in Cellular, Molecular and Biomedical Studies and offers research in core microbiological principles of DNA replication and bacterial growth, virology and host-virus interactions, malaria and Plasmodium falciparum genetics and drug resistance, as well as multiple aspects of research in immunology. 

Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics

The Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics Program aims to integrate both new and traditional areas of Pharmacology, and to provide a broad overview of this dynamic and important field of biology.

Neurobiology & Behavior

The Neurobiology and Behavior Program offer a diverse set of research and academic experiences that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of neuroscience. 

Nutritional and Metabolic Biology

The Doctoral Program in Nutritional and Metabolic Biology integrates a number of fields relating to human health and disease. 

Pathobiology and Mechanmisms of Disease

The Pathobiology and Mechanisms of Disease Program aims at a new approach to converting basic research of disease into clinically relevant results.. 

Stem Cell Biology

Reseach in Stem Cell Biology aims to understand stem cells in health and disease using basic and translational approaches.

Systems Biology

The Systems Biology program includes research areas taking mathematical and computational approaches to understand fundamental biological processes including development, gene regulation, the function of cells, organs, and tissues, and disease mechanisms.
