Students in this program may choose areas of special concentration such as biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, pharmacology or microbiology.
The MS in Cellular Biology and Anatomy program emphasizes training in basic and translational clinical research. Students can also pursue a graduate certificate in Biomedical Sciences from the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine.
Cognitive Science is the interdisciplinary study of the mind. Typical research areas of cognitive science include judgment and decision making, language comprehension and production, language acquisition, visual recognition of objects and events, goal directed movement in complex environments and consciousness.
The PhD program in Genetics focuses on traditional Genetics as well as the holistic and integrative discipline of Systems Biology.
Program graduates acquire key research and communications skills, developing their abilities in areas including scientific writing, problem solving, and quantitative literacy.
The MS in Medical Pharmacology program trains biomedical scientists with advanced technical expertise. The MS program provides rigorous scientific training and on-the-job experience.
The PhD program in Medical Pharmacology prepares students for research careers in academia, industry, or government. Students experience medical research hands-on through participation in well-funded, multidisciplinary research programs. Graduates from the PhD program possess advanced scientific knowledge in pharmacology.
The PhD program in Neuroscience is designed to provide students with the knowledge and tools that they will need to embark on careers as educators and researchers. Students design individually-tailored programs that provide a thorough grounding in the field as a whole, while exploring chosen areas of specialization more deeply.
Students in the Physiological Sciences program work side-by-side with the faculty investigators from a wide range of disciplines, conducting innovative research on molecular, cellular, and organ-level processes.
