Dubbed “M3D”, Molecular Medicine & Mechanisms of Disease is a direct entry Ph.D. graduate program for basic science investigation of disease mechanisms.
M3D trains graduate students to use advances in basic sciences to solve problems relevant to human disease and to use insights from human disease processes to solve fundamental biological problems.
The M3D PhD Program is a collaborative effort among the Departments of Medicine, Pathology and Pediatrics. Students may carry out PhD research with any qualified faculty member in one of those participating departments. Qualified faculty from other departments may train M3D PhD students, provided that the faculty member commits to support the student while in training.
