Graduate Studies

Ph.D. students interested in conducting research in the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics (MPBP) should apply through the Cellular, Molecular and Biomedical Sciences (CMB) Program (application link ).

CMB students have the opportunity to conduct their research rotations and dissertation research with any member of the MPBP department.   (see Faculty Interests )

To find out more information about the interdisciplinary CMB Program, visit the “Prospective Students page on the CMB website.

The CMB Program has research strengths in the areas of:

  • Structural Biology and Biophysics
  • Cancer Biology and Genome Stability
  • Lung and Cardiovascular Biology
  • Developmental and Plant Biology
  • Proteomics and Bioinformatics
  • Immunology and Microbial Pathogenesis

When Ph.D. candidates join a lab in the MPBP department, they enter a supportive and collaborative environment that encourages innovation. Graduates of the CMB doctoral program have gone on to a variety of positions in academia, research institutions, and industry.
