Interdisciplinary Programs for Graduate Students

Graduate students can pursue interdisciplinary specializations within the context of their PhD studies.  Molecular Biology and Biochemistry offers two interdisciplinary paths in the areas of Molecular Biophysics and Integrative Genomic Sciences. Specialization in these areas is achieved through course work, dissertation work performed under the guidance of program faculty and seminars. The departments of Biology, Computer Science and Philosophy participate in the IGS program, while Molecular Biophysics has program faculty in Chemistry, Biology and Physics in addition to MB&B.
