Programs and Curriculum

Join an enthusiastic community of learners investigating genetics, disease processes and systems-level biology.

Your coursework provides a solid background in the human genome and gene mutation, the function and structure of proteins, gene expression and computational analysis of DNA and protein sequences. Elective options allow you to specialize in biomedical analysis, pharmacology or neuroscience, for example.

Working alongside faculty-scientists, you also will develop diverse research expertise, using model organisms, large-scale genetic/genomic screens and other cutting-edge techniques.

Through the program, you will have opportunities to explore exciting new areas of inquiry, identify and develop your own research interests and present your findings in public forums.
