Students are generally admitted through the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences (IGPBS) in the fall of the year. This program admits students with interests in all areas of basic biomedical research. The first year of the program involves course work in molecular and cellular biology and rotations in at least two laboratories. At the end of the first year, students who select an advisor with a primary appointment in Microbiology become members of the Department of Microbiology, Molecular Genetics and Immunology.
Exceptionally qualified students can apply for direct entry into the Department's Graduate Program. Please contact the Department's Graduate Advisor (see below) for further information.
