Graduate Program in Cell and Molecular Biology


For general information about the Program and the Graduate School consult the Graduate Catalog

NOTE: No applicants are admitted into the program until a CEMB faculty member agrees to sponsor the applicant and accept them into their research program. The sponsoring faculty member will provide direction for education and research, and will arrange for any assistantship. How to obtain a sponsor is covered under Tips and Suggestions

The Cell and Molecular Biology Program is primarily a Doctoral Program. Approximately 75% of the students admitted are for the PhD. Students with a BS degree can be admitted directly into the PhD program without a MS degree.

Tips and Suggestions for Applicants (When to apply, how to apply, and how to get a Faculty Sponsor)

Statement of Purpose - An example

Letters of Reference: Applicants provide the email addresses of three faculty references. When your application file is processed by the Graduate School the Admissions system will email those faculty with a link to provide a reference through an automated online form. We apologize: This "FEATURE" is currently NOT working. Please have your referees email their letters of reference directly to the Program Director.

Alternative to the Statement of Purpose- fill this out and send it in instead
