Application Deadline: December 1

Admission to the Graduate Programs in Molecular Biosciences is competitive. A bachelor’s degree or its equivalent is required for admission. Appropriate undergraduate preparation might include a concentration in biology, biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, developmental biology, microbiology, neurobiology, genetics or a related field. Successful applicants have typically had some exposure to laboratory research and are able to articulate why further training in graduate school is desired.

Superior ability needs to be demonstrated by grade-point average (minimum GPA of 3.0), letters of recommendation and score on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) general test. A GRE subject test is not required. TOEFL scores are required of students from countries in which English is not the primary language.

Application Instructions

The Admissions Committee for the Graduate Programs in Molecular Biosciences reviews application for five participating degree-granting graduate programs. Specifying any one of the five programs does not limit a student’s choice of laboratories in which to work. At the end of the first year, regardless of which program was specified during the application process, a student may select any one of the five programs in which to continue.
