Application for the Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences

Application for the Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences - Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Track


The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offers an interdisciplinary and collaborative Masters Program based on cutting-edge research in a number of areas, including cancer biology, cell signaling, lipidomics, enzymology, RNA and DNA biology, antimicrobial pathogenesis and resistance, drug discovery and structural biology. Alongside, we offer training in state-of-the art methodologies and approaches that include molecular biology, bioinformatics, nucleic acid and protein biochemistry, genetics, high-throughput screening, microarrays, mass spectrometry, NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. The Department has an outstanding record of extramural funding and in April 2012, was ranked 20th in NIH funding for Biochemistry departments in the United States. Please refer to our faculty pages for more information on research and feel free to contact any of our faculty about their specific research interests.


No single metric is used to assess applicants, but rather a broader picture of the candidate’s qualities is considered by our admissions committee. As guideline, candidates with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or greater, and who have achieved 50th percentile for the Verbal and Quantitative portions of the GRE are more likely to be considered favorably. Experience in research is desirable, although not required. For international students, a TOEFL score of at least 100 is required.
