Graduate Programs

The Center for Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics (CBSD) is a nexus for faculty carrying out research with graduate students in several Ph.D. programs that train students in the Biomedical Sciences with an emphasis on physical biochemistry and structural biology. Foremost among these is the Ph.D. program in Biochemistry and Biophysics. However, graduate students in the Cellular, Molecular, and Microbial Biology (CMMB), Chemistry and Biomedical Sciences and Medicinal Chemistry graduate programs are also engaged in research supported by the CBSD.

Biochemistry and Biophysics

This graduate degree program is offered by the Biochemistry Program, an interdisciplinary program that includes faculty from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the Division of Biological Sciences and the Department of Computer Science. Students pursuing a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Biophysics will learn to apply the tools of physical biochemistry and structural biology to exciting problems that probe the physical basis of life at the molecular level.

Cellular, Molecular and Microbial Biolology

This graduate degree program is offered by the Division of Biological Sciences. Research projects range from cellular and developmental biology to microbiology. There are many opportunities for collaborative research projects with a focus on biology but an emphasis on structural and mechanistic aspects of the biology.

Chemistry

This graduate degree program offered by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry provides research opportunities which focus on the chemistry of biological systems. Strengths are in the biological aspects of organic chemistry, environmental biochemistry, physical biochemistry and structural biology.

Biomedical Sciences

This graduate degree program is offered by the Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Students in this program carry out research in cardiovascular pharmacology, pharmacogenetics, and cancer research.

Medicinal Chemistry

This graduate degree program is offered by the Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Students in this program apply a combination of chemistry, biology, pharmacology, and computation to research the relationships between chemical structure and biological activity.

Neuroscience

This graduate degree program is offered by the Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The program emphasizes neurochemical, protein, and cellular level research approaches, particularly as related to investigating mechanisms of neuronal communication and how alterations in these processes contribute to CNS disease and injury.
