Medical Sciences


Return to Areas of Study Return to: Areas of Study


The Graduate Program in Medical Sciences is designed to provide the opportunity for advanced education and research in the Biomedical and Health Sciences. Ph.D. level programs are available in: Metabolism and Nutrition (MN); Blood and Vasculature (BV); Cancer and Genetics (CG); Infection and Immunity (II); and Physiology/Pharmacology (PP).

The goal of the program is to provide students with the opportunity to become competent investigators in health-related research problems. This is accomplished in an environment in which multiple disciplines are represented and in a setting appropriate for acquiring a broad appreciation of problems in health and disease. Students are expected to acquire in-depth understanding and expertise in a specific area.
