The Department of Basic Sciences is organized into five faculty divisions: Biochemistry, Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biomedical Engineering Sciences. Faculty in each division work collaboratively to advance medical science and train the next generation of investigators through the Integrated Biomedical Graduate Studies Program.
Students in the graduate studies program may earn doctoral or master's degrees in:
- Cancer, Development and Regenerative Biology (CDRB)
- Infection, Immunity and Inflammation (III)
- Neurosciences, Systems Biology and Bioengineering (NSBB)
