The graduate programs in Molecular and Cellular Biology prepares students for careers in modern biological research. The diverse faculty ensures broad training that includes coursework and research experience in:

  • Molecular biology of prokaryotes and eukaryotes
  • Biochemistry and structural biology
  • Advance cell biology
  • Epigenetic regulation of gene expression
  • Genetics and molecular biology of model organisms and human pathogens
  • Virology and cancer biology
  • Mechanisms of aging and senescence
  • Neuronal development and RNA processing
  • Neurodegeneration
  • Structure and dynamics of nucleotide binding and membrane proteins

The graduate program offers three degree options: PhD, MS, and MA A five-year combined BS-MS program is also offered to current SMU undergraduates.
