Molecular Biology Faculty
Please visit our Faculty Index for participating faculty accepting PhD students from the Molecular Biology Program!
Faculty from the seven diverse departments of Biochemistry, Human Genetics, Neurobiology, Nutrition and Integrative Physiology, Oncological Sciences, the School of Biological Sciences and the Division of Microbiology and Immunology are actively seeking students for rotations and thesis research. MBP students have a variety of choices to carry out cutting-edge research mentored by world-class scientists.
