Program Description:

The Integrative Molecular and Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program offers a multidisciplinary environment that provides the brightest and most ambitious students with skills needed to become leaders in diverse scientific disciplines. The Program has more than 125 internationally recognized and well-funded faculty, including members of the National Academy of Sciences, Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators, and recipients of a variety of other prestigious awards.

Program faculty have made seminal discoveries, including the molecular basis for common forms of Autism Spectrum Disorders, Rett syndrome, Spinocerebellar ataxias, Prader-Willi and Angelman syndromes; pioneering links between p53, cancer and aging; and sequencing of the genomes of humans, other species, and microbiomes. IMBS students can join a Cancer Biology Track or a Biology of Aging Track, which provide opportunities to integrate basic research findings with a translational perspective.
