UCLA Molecular Biology Interdepartmental Ph.D. Program
four distinct research areas with flexibility in training to explore across disciplines
The Molecular Biology Interdepartmental PhD. Program (MB-IDP) consists of a diverse group of faculty with shared research interests and approaches. Each interdepartmental Home Area is aligned with a Ph.D.-granting program, provides in-depth, cutting-edge training, and offers access to a wide variety of exceptional faculty mentors. The Molecular Biology Interdepartmental Ph.D. programs consists of four Home Areas.
Cell and Developmental Biology
Investigation of basic processes within single cells, as well as how these processes contribute to the development of entire organisms
Immunity, Microbes, and Molecular Pathogenesis
Focuses on the study of microbes and the immune system that plays key roles in infections and a wide array of human diseases
Part of the Graduate Programs of Bioscience
