Thank you for your interest in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department's PhD Program! Students take courses and perform research rotations during their first year in the program before settling on a laboratory in which to conduct their PhD research in subsequent years. Students are fully supported financially during the entirety of their graduate training, which normally takes about 5 years. Successful completion of our program culminates with a PhD in Biochemistry.

If you are interested in applying to the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department's PhD Program, please view the detailed PhD Admissions information.

At this time, we are not admitting students to the Masters Program in Biochemistry.
