Molecular Medicine and Mechanisms of Disease (M3D) PhD Program & the Genome Sciences PhD Program
The interdisciplinary M3D PhD Program trains students to use advances in basic sciences to solve problems relevant to human disease; and to use insights from human disease processes to solve fundamental biological problems. Thesis research is supervised by two mentors, one a basic scientist and the other a clinician scientist. Students complement their experimental work with exposure to relevant problems in the clinic. The M3D Program is designed for students to complete PhD training in five years, preparing trainees for careers in academia, biotech, pharmaceutical industry, education, publishing, and public policy.
The goal of the Genomes Sciences PhD Program is to address leading edge questions in biology and medicine by developing and applying genetic, genomic and computational approaches that take advantage of genomic information now available for humans, model organisms and a host of other species.
