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 Vilcek 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.
