Atlanta, Georgia, United States
Degrees Offered: PhD
Our graduate program offers broad training in the biomedical sciences for students interested in learning how the drugs of today work and how the novel therapeutics of tomorrow can be developed. Areas of strength for research include cancer, neuropharmacology, signal transduction, infectious disease, metabolomics, toxicology, chemical biology and drug discovery, nucleic acid and stem cell therapeutics. Over 2 decades of an NIH training grant is evidence of high ranking by our peers.

To be a successful applicant you will have had significant research experiences already. One and a half years would be a minimum. You can also clearly articulate your near and long term motivations for engaging a best-in-field research degree program, such as ours.
We can best advise you whether applying would be worthwhile if your profile has the information noted above.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Biology/Biological Sciences, General.
Biomathematics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology, Other.
Medicinal and Pharmaceutical Chemistry.
Pharmacology and Toxicology.
Our program staff will initially review your file and pass all of the materials to the admissions committee comprised of MSP faculty. An interview weekend will be conducted for selected applicants to meet program students and faculty. Following interviews, students will receive an offer of acceptance or be denied admission. Students must then make their decision to accept or decline the offer. Application fees are waived if you apply by Oct 31, 2016.
Competitive applicants have significant research experience and can express a strong motivation for a research career. A strong record of performance in basic science and math coursework is important. Competitive applicants will have undergraduate courses in biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, physiology and chemistry. Our minimum GPA is 3.0 but we do not have a lower cutoff on GRE.
We value very highly relevant research experience (eg, prior biomedical research) but accept students who've worked on research problems in other fields. We want to know if you've caught the bug!
All entering students receive a tuition scholarship, health insurance, and a competitive stipend for living expenses. In the 2015-2016 academic year, the standard stipend is $29,500.
Upper year students who successfully compete for extramural predoctoral grants receive an additional stipend supplement. Emory University graduate students consistently rank in the top 1 or 2 universities in the number extramural predoctoral grants awarded.
We're an interdepartmental program. Fifty-two training faculty from 17 departments provide a wealth of diverse research training opportunities for students. The goal is to produce broadly trained scientists who will contribute to the discovery and development of novel therapeutics for a wide spectrum of human diseases.
We recognize a PhD can open doors to many kinds of careers and encourage our students to explore their opportunities. A listing of our alumni placement can be found at :http://biomed.emory.edu/PROGRAM_SITES/MSP/guides/alumni.html
We offer a great career development program including bringing back alums to speak about their varied careers, networking opportunities with speakers and other visitors, and even internships (eg, BEST program). See:
