Doctor of Philosophy

The curriculum (pdf) leading to a doctoral degree typically takes about five years. The emphasis is to train scientists who can be principal investigators running their own laboratories in academia or industry. All Ph.D. students receive tuition waivers and a competitive stipend. All recent Ph.D. students in the area of cell/molecular biology have received outstanding postdoctoral placements at institutions such as Berkeley, Duke, Johns Hopkins and Cold Spring Harbor.
