Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology Program at the University of Arizona

The BMCB Graduate Program has a vibrant and progressive tradition of excellence in training outstanding students to reach their full potential in research and teaching in the biological sciences. They offer a diversity of research opportunities in a wide range of experimental systems: developmental biology, molecular genetics, cellular signaling, virology, cancer biology, transcriptional regulation, neurobiology, structural biochemistry, genomics and proteomics.

Detailed information about our program may be found at http://bmcb.biology.arizona.edu/.

First-year students enter the program through the Arizona Biological and Biomedical Sciences (ABBS) umbrella program, which allows students to explore labs in eight different programs, including BMCB, Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Cancer Biology, Genetics, Immunobiology, Medical Pharmacology, Physiological Sciences, and Plant Sciences. Students complete a first-year rotation program before choosing an advisor and graduate program in the spring of the first year. Application instructions can be found at: http://abbs.arizona.edu/. Please note that the deadline for fall 2015 admission is December 1, 2014.

MARC Scholars are entitled to an application fee waiver.
