The Consolidated Graduate Program in Molecular Biosciences
coordinates recruitment and admission of applicants to the doctoral
programs in biochemistry, cell and developmental biology, microbiology
and molecular genetics, physiology and integrative biology, and
cellular and molecular pharmacology. As part of this task, it has
established a common first-year doctoral core curriculum for those
disciplines. The consolidated programs are conducted jointly by the
Graduate School-New Brunswick of Rutgers University and the Graduate
School of Biomedical Sciences of the University of Medicine and
Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
Students may study with more than 200 participating faculty members
affiliated with these programs. They have opportunities for study in
such fields as biochemistry, biotechnology, cell biology, computational
molecular biology, developmental biology, macromolecular structure,
microbiology, molecular biology, molecular biophysics, molecular
genetics, molecular virology, and protein engineering.
