PhD Curriculum

First Year Overview

Incoming Program students will take the curriculum of the Molecular Biosciences for the first year. Students are required to do three laboratory rotations as part of their graduate education. The laboratory in which the student's research is to be done should generally be chosen at the end of the third rotation. Thesis research will begin at this time. The written qualifying exam will be given to all students entering through the Molecular Biosciences Program after the completion of the first year curriculum sometime in June.
