Graduate Students


The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics currently has graduate students in our department from several graduate programs at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.  The diversity of programs that our students are enrolled in represent the broad research interests of our Faculty.
 
Students interested in pursuing a PhD in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics have the opportunity to do so via several different Graduate Programs. Faculty in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics participate in: The Molecular Biology Program, the Biomedical Sciences Program, the Program in Structural Biology and Biochemistry, the Computational Biosciences Program, the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD), the Cancer Biology Program, and The Human Molecular Genetics and Genomics Program.  Visit the appropriate link for the program that best matches your interests to learn more about the PhD opportunities within that program. The Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics Faculty Profiles list the PhD programs in which each faculty member participates.  Admission to one of the
programs listed in the faculty member profile enables the students to pursue a PhD with that faculty member.
 
The Department invites all graduate students to present their research during the Friday afternoon “Research Seminar Series”.  This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the research in the department and establish collaborations with departmental faculty, postdoctoral fellows, professional research assistants and your fellow graduate students!
