Welcome to the Graduate Program in Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry, and Microbiology

If you are contemplating a biomedical research career in the academic, educational, federal or commercial worlds, please consider the Graduate Program in Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry, and Microbiology for your formal training. Our Graduate Programs consist of 30 faculty in the Molecular Genetics Track and 18 in the Human Genetics Track that are currently training our next generation of scientists. Choosing the proper graduate program for your training is one of the most important decisions you will make. Click here for more information regarding the admission process.

With the future of medicine and medical practice firmly rooted in recent advances in biochemical and genetic technologies, the graduate programs in the Department of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry and Microbiology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine are ideally placed to provide you with the challenge, intellectual excitement and high-level training necessary to jump-start your career in molecular biology and medicine.

All Doctoral Students are provided with a stipend of $28,000 per year plus tuition. This stipend increases to $30,000 per year after the students pass their Candidacy Exams in year 2.  Opportunities exist for students to apply for special fellowships or scholarships—not only are these prestigious awards but they also carry a modest increase in stipend levels.

Students are also strongly encouraged to apply for external fellowships (American Heart Association, National Institutes of Health, etc) to support their research endeavors—success in such applications will also result in a meritorious increase in the basic stipend level.
