Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (M.S.)
The M.S. degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology provides strong research training for students who are interested in a research career in academia, medicine, or industry, in related careers in which first-hand research experience is an asset, or as a prelude to more advanced degrees.
Research interests in the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology & Immunology are diverse, allowing graduate students to choose from a broad spectrum of topics when picking a research lab. Regular interactions between students and faculty are facilitated with weekly departmental and student seminars, formal collaborations between research groups and a cooperative work environment that promotes discussion of research projects between students of different labs.
