The Department of Biomedical Sciences has graduate programs in three areas: Biomedical Sciences, Neuroscience, and, Molecular Biophysics. For additional information about the program click on the heading of each program title.
The Ph.D. Program in Biomedical Sciences at the Florida State University College of Medicine is designed to train modern biomedical scientists who take advantage of genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and other contemporary approaches to address questions of developmental, cell, and molecular biology related to human health. The Program is appropriate for students with majors in biochemistry, biology or other health-related fields.
The Program in Neuroscience is an independent research and graduate training program which includes faculty from the departments of Biological Science, Biomedical Science, Mathematics, and Psychology. Its objective is to promote interdisciplinary basic research into neural processes, including the biological mechanisms underlying behavior, and to provide advanced graduate training leading to the Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience.
The Molecular Biophysics Graduate Program (MOB) at FSU is an interdisciplinary program that unites nine departments and institutes (Biological Science, Biomedical Sciences, Chemical & Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computational Sciences, Materials Research & Technology, Mathematics, Physics, and Nutrition, Food & Exercise Sciences) across four Colleges (Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Human Sciences, and Medicine). The MOB program provides graduate training for a small number of highly motivated biology, physics, engineering and chemistry students who are eager to take advantage of the interdisciplinary research environment provided by the Institute of Molecular Biophysics. The mission is to train students at all levels in a multi-disciplinary environment with the primary unifying theme being the use of biophysical, biochemical, and computational tools to study macromolecules and their assemblies.
