Program Description:

This program involves investigators in seven basic science departments:biochemistry, cell biology, microbiology, medical and molecular parasitology, pathology, pharmacology, and physiology and neuroscience.Training is offered in the general areas of structure, function, and biogenesis of macromolecules and subcellular organelles, as well as the mechanisms that regulate cell metabolism, differentiation and growth, and intercellular interactions during development. The interdisciplinary character of the program allows for a wider perspective for the student and a greater selection of thesis advisers and research projects than could be obtained from a single department. The design of the curriculum aims at providing the students with an advanced, but balanced, biological education, which prepares them to understand and apply to their research sophisticated ideas and methodologies of biochemistry, genetics,immunology, molecular cell biology and structural biology.
