Academics

Students earn either a M.S. or Ph.D degree in Cell, Molecular, and Structural Biology (CMSB) but closely interact with one or more departments.

CMSB students are eligible for assistantships and will take courses in core areas of cell, molecular and structural biology. CMSB students will also attend both scientific and professional development-based seminars to prepare them for life after graduate training.

Students interested in the CMSB program should review the research interests of the CMSB faculty. Any CMSB faculty member may serve as a thesis/dissertation advisor.
