The MS in Bioinformatics and Molecular Biochemistry has a Biochemistry track and a Bioinformatics track. The program provides schedule flexibility (classes are held in the late afternoons and evenings), options to choose between thesis or non-thesis tracks and between a 1-year or a 2-year program. It combines a rigorous and up-to-date curriculum with hands-on experience in a myriad of laboratories and research initiatives, and allows students to partially create their own program by offering a diverse elective courses pool. The program includes students coming from many countries, and our graduates have gone on to successfully pursue many career paths. In addition, the Institute of Biomedical Sciences offers a PhD track in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics.
The Department has a passionately committed Teaching Faculty with a strong biomedical research background, who teaches most of the undergraduate, graduate, medical and allied health biochemistry and molecular biology courses. The Research Faculty develops and teaches the advanced courses for the MS and PhD programs, and mentors students in their research projects.
