This program combines the expertise of seven programs at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Microbiology & Immunology, Neuroscience, Pathology, Physiology and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Students enroll in a common first-year curriculum that is built around a fully integrated, literature-driven course covering molecular, cellular, and systemic biology. Students can conduct laboratory rotations with faculty mentors in any of the participating programs. After completion of the first year, students enter a research lab and complete their training in the Ph.D. program in Neuroscience.
