The Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology offers training for the investigation of biological and biomedical problems using molecular, cellular, and morphological approaches. Faculty members are active in a diversity of research areas, including cell and developmental biology, neuroscience, vision research, and immunology. Study for the Ph.D. degree includes dissertation research in the laboratory of a faculty member and can generally be completed in four to five years. Students who have also been admitted as medical students can typically complete both M.D. and Ph.D. degrees in six to seven years. Admission to the master's degree program is very limited and based on special circumstances.
