Program Description:

The Biomedical Sciences Cluster at the University of Chicago consists of five graduate programs: Cancer Biology, Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Metabolism and Nutrition, and Molecular Pathogenesis and Molecular Medicine. Each program is a distinct, degree-granting unit in the Biological Sciences Division. The Cluster system enables these programs to integrate faculty, coursework, research programs, training programs, and seminars/symposia for a truly multidisciplinary training experience. The result for graduate students is an integrated and flexible course of study, with options to work with over 170 full-time faculty. For both pre- and postdoctoral trainees and faculty, the interdisciplinary nature of the Cluster provides extensive opportunities for interaction and collaboration.


Since 1913, the University of Chicago has been continuously accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.
