Program & Curriculum Overview
The goal of our graduate program is to recruit and train students to become critical thinkers and versatile experimentalists from experimental biophysics through biochemistry to cell biology, physiology and behavior.
Students pursuing MS or PhD degrees in BCMB also may be interested in pursuing a graduate minor in other areas. Two programs have been developed that BCMB students sometimes opt to include in their graduate education plan.
Grad Student Organization
The BCMB Graduate Student Organization (GSO) supports graduate students by organizing social, outreach, and professional events. Founded in 2016, the first GSO members were enterprising graduate students who had been involved in organizing holiday parties, the fall retreat, and interview weekend.
Awards & Highlights
Each year, the BCMB department recognizes outstanding graduate students who have excelled in research and teaching.
