The PhD in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, & Biochemistry (MCBB) is designed to build a solid foundation in these three related fields through coursework and seminars, and to develop the skills for achieving cutting-edge research accomplishments. The program is based on an interdisciplinary environment and a breadth of approaches and biological interests, including faculty from multiple departments (e.g. Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Health Sciences). Its goal is to propel students into successful careers in academia, research institutions, industry (e.g. biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries), or in government as policy makers. The program accepts applicants with degrees in related disciplines where the focus has been on biology, chemistry, biotechnology, biochemistry, or a relevant field.

The MCBB Program guarantees support for five years for all PhD students, contingent on satisfactory performance in the program.
