Graduate Training in Biochemistry & Molecular Pharmacology
Faculty in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology are internationally recognized scientists who have trained more than 85 PhD and MD/PhD students.
Through interdisciplinary PhD training programs at NYU Langone’s Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, which are supported by a National Institutes of Health (NIH) training grant, trainees complete two years of structured course work, laboratory rotations, and a qualifying exam. After selection of a thesis lab, students pursue mentored research to complete a dissertation.
The program requires completion of 72 graduate credits, at least 32 of which must be in coursework. Candidates must also pass a qualifying examination and successfully defend a dissertation.
Molecular Pharmacology PhD Training Program
The Molecular Pharmacology PhD Training Program is supported in part by a T32 training grant from the NIH.
For questions about the molecular pharmacology training program, please email Erika Bach, PhD, program director, at email@example.com or Gregory David, PhD, graduate advisor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cellular and Molecular Biology PhD Training Program
In partnership with the Department of Cell Biology, we co-lead the Cellular and Molecular Biology PhD Training Program, which also receives NIH funding.
For questions about the cellular and molecular biology training program, please email Daniel B. Rifkin, PhD, program director, at email@example.com or Elaine L. Wilson, PhD, graduate advisor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
