The Molecular Biology Program
is dedicated to providing rigorous training to its students in a supportive environment. The molecular biology faculty are members of many different departments who are applying the techniques of molecular biology to answer questions in diverse areas. Molecular biology, the science of how living things work at the molecular level, has spearheaded the recent revolution in our understanding of human disease and led to the birth of the biotechnology industry. In almost all aspects of modern biomedical research, a professional knowledge of Molecular biology is essential. The training program is designed to equip students for careers at the cutting edge of biology. Students are supported from both private (Bolie Fund) and government (NIH T32) training grants. As a testament to the program’s success, our graduates have been successful at securing positions in academic, government and industrial settings.

  • Congratulations to our T32 awardees: Ashley Denney, Emily Duncan, Gabriella Li, Laura White, Katie Yergert, and Stephan Ramos

  • Congratulations to our incoming fall 2017 class: Juliana Phillips (Greenville College), Roberto Castro Gutierrez (University of Texas, El Paso), Kimberly Choi (University of Washington), Raeann Goering (Hamline University)
