The graduate program in Molecular Pathology and Immunology provides training in biochemical, cell and molecular biological research to elucidate the fundamental mechanisms of human disease processes. The program emphasizes training in experimental laboratory investigation leading to the Ph.D. degree for students interested in pursuing careers in basic biomedical research and teaching. Graduate study in this area offers students the opportunity to integrate principles of immunology, molecular genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, and biophysics into research relevant to improving the quality of life through the discovery of new avenues for treatment of disease.
