This graduate program combines the resources of basic science and clinical medicine and emphasizes the molecular processes underlying human diseases. The Molecular Medicine Graduate Program is designed to prepare students for careers in biomedical research and requires approximately five years of full-time study, including course work, examinations, and dissertation research (sample curriculum). All students complete a PhD dissertation based on original research.
The program is based in MCG's Department of Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine (DNRM). The Molecular Medicine Graduate Program includes more than 60 faculty drawn from clinical and basic science departments, including the Immunotherapy Center, Center for Molecular Chaperone/Radiobiology & Virology Cancer and the Cancer Center. All are committed to using molecular approaches to solve disease-related problems.
