Conduct research on diseases that impact millions. Work with acclaimed University of Toledo faculty members in our molecular medicine graduate program.
Molecular medicine is a research-intensive track within the graduate biomedical sciences program in the College of Medicine and Life Sciences at The University of Toledo.
The molecular medicine program offers:
The molecular medicine (MOME) program employs a unique interdisciplinary approach. Since we are located on UToledo’s Health Science Campus, we draw faculty members not only from the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, but also from the departments of medicine and orthopedics.
Our graduate students learn to conduct research in the underlying molecular mechanisms of diseases that have profound impact on human health. Our faculty members and students research many diseases and conditions that are the major causes of death in the U.S, including:
Full financial support. All University of Toledo Ph.D. students in the biomedical sciences program receive full-tuition scholarships and research stipends.
State-of-the-art labs. Use the latest technology and equipment in your molecular medicine research. Many researchers work with genetically engineered rodents.
Relevant research. Because UToledo’s molecular medicine program focuses its research on diseases that affect millions of Americans, we prepare our students for active, independent and relevant research careers.
Graduates of UToledo’s molecular medicine master’s and doctoral programs find positions as:
Our graduates have been named post-doctoral Fellows at such prestigious institutions as:
All UToledo biomedical sciences graduate students enroll in a core curriculum during their first years. The curriculum is a mix of didactic, small-group discussion; laboratory courses; and laboratory rotations. It is designed to provide a foundation of knowledge for cutting-edge research.
Other courses include a statistics course, a grant-writing workshop, an advanced course in molecular medicine, as well as elective courses in practical bioinformatics.
Graduate students also participate in journal clubs, attend seminars and conduct independent research.
One of the biggest draws of our molecular medicine program is our exceptional faculty from all departments within the College of Medicine and Life Sciences. They are committed to the success of our students and are well-respected in their fields. They have won awards for excellence in teaching, research and mentoring.
Our faculty members are well-funded, productive researchers who involve students in their work. They often coauthor papers with students.
Our molecular medicine program draws on faculty research strengths in a multitude of areas, including:
