Physiology and Developmental Biology MS
This MS degree program provides students with a sound understanding of current concepts in physiology and/or developmental biology. The thesis research project teaches the fundamentals of scientific inquiry and trains the students in state-of-the-art research techniques. Submission of the thesis to a peer-reviewed journal is encouraged but not required.
Physiology and Developmental Biology PhD
This PhD degree program is a comprehensive academic endeavor in physiology and developmental biology. Although the research project of each PhD student will focus in an area of either physiology or developmental biology, all students will be expected to have an understanding of key concepts in both disciplines. The research project will include independent inquiry and in-depth application of the scientific method. Publication of the research in peer-reviewed journals is expected but not required.
