The mission of the MSMB program is to train scientists in the basic mechanisms of human health and disease. The program is interdisciplinary, bringing together basic, applied, and clinical faculty from a number of departments to provide students with individualized, cutting-edge biomedical research training. Research areas encompass a broad range of disciplines including molecular genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, pathophysiology, microbiology, immunology, and infectious diseases. The program offers courses in core subjects, laboratory research techniques, ethical conduct of science, and a graduate seminar course. The primary requirement for the MSMB program is the completion of original research and the publication of a thesis describing that research. The program emphasizes the importance of high quality research and is designed to assist students in fulfilling their potential as research scientists.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will:
