Pathobiology and Molecular Medicine (PBMM) is a theme within Graduate Biomedical Sciences (GBS), an umbrella program of eight PhD themes. The advantage of joining is that students have access to all 350+ faculty within GBS as well as courses from every theme, allowing for an interdisciplinary academic and research experience.
PBMM is designed to give students the very best multidisciplinary training within the emerging and exciting field of molecular medicine. The main objective of the theme is to expose students to a diverse faculty with research interests that range from molecules - to whole organisms - to disease processes - to new therapies. Our premise is that students, when trained in basic principles of molecular and cellular biology, in addition to organ-based physiology, pharmacology, toxicology, pathology, and environmental health sciences will be prepared to study biological processes at any level of organization. The important biomedical issues of today are sufficiently complex that the successful investigator must be able to tackle these issues using integrated, multi-faceted approaches.
While in the program, students are provided an annual stipend of $29,000, paid tuition and fees, and single-coverage health insurance.
