The CMDB and Genetics programs have merged to form the Genetics, Molecular & Cellular Biology (GMCB) program. Interested applicants should apply to GMCB.
The Genetics Program trains scientists in the principles and applications of classical genetics and molecular genetics for careers in research, teaching, and biotechnology. Interests among our faculty include Cancer Biology and Genetics, Genetics of Host-Pathogen Interaction, Immunogenetics, and Neurogenetics.
Students are involved in research immediately. During the first year, students will be introduced to research training in genetics by completing four eight to ten-week laboratory research rotations in different laboratories.
Upon successful completion of the first year courses and the qualifying examination, students select a research mentor and begin their thesis work.
Meet Our Students
Our students come from across the US and the world and are pursuing a wide range of thesis projects.
Publication of research is a key part of training and our students publish their work in excellent journals.
