The Ph.D. in Molecular Pathogenesis encompasses the study of molecular pathogenesis of infectious diseases. This program provides students with the skills and knowledge to address key gaps in our understanding of how microorganisms interact with their hosts to cause disease. The program has seven clearly-defined training objectives to prepare our future colleagues as scientists and empower them to influence government policy, the technology industry, and academic scholarship with their expert opinions and findings. Times to completion are variable, and range from 4 to 6 years, consistent with national averages for a PhD in the Microbiological Sciences.
Students accepted into the Molecular Pathogenesis program receive an assistantship and a tuition waiver.
