Degree Requirements, Ph.D.

 

Alternatively students may also enter the Biochemistry program through the Medical School´┐Żs umbrella graduate program the Biomedical Sciences Training Program, which encompasses several departments within the School of Medicine and offers students an opportunity to rotate through a larger number of research laboratories. Regardless of the program, course work and research requirements are identical. For more information see the Biomedical Sciences Training Program website. Online applications can be submitted through this site.


Structural Biology and Biophysics Training Program (SBB-TP) (note that this SBB-TP program welcomes both students who have training in biological sciences as well as students from "quantitative backgrounds" who have little or no training in the biological sciences).
