Doctoral Program in Biochemistry and Cancer Biology

The objective of the graduate program in Biochemistry & Cancer Biology (BCB) at the Augusta University is to train students to be outstanding and independent scientists that effectively compete for contemporary biomedical research positions. The program is underpinned by the notion that training involves several equally important skills and focuses on academic, ethical,  technical and presentation development. Training in the BCB program is designed to address each of these areas and provide students with a clear, well-rounded pathway to graduation.
