Program Description:

The graduate program in molecular biotechnology trains students to bring the knowledge and recent advances in a variety of disciplines -- e.g., physics, chemistry, engineering, and computer sciences -- to bear on the complex problems of modern biology and medicine. The program emphasizes extensive research experience within an interdisciplinary and state-of-the-art research environment.

The molecular biotechnology graduate program is designed to educate and stimulate students at the interface of biological, physical, and computational sciences. Students are trained to focus on the development and/or application of new tools to challenging biological problems. These tools include the development of new chemistries, instruments, and computer hardware or software for the analysis of DNA, proteins, or cells. The goal of the program is to provide students with a sound background in molecularand cellular biology, and a broad access to research expertise in disciplines outside biology. Accordingly, the faculty brings together skills in applied mathematics, biology, chemistry, computer sciences, physics, and instrument design.
