About

The Intercollege Graduate Degree Program in Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Biosciences at Pennsylvania State University is designed to prepare researchers across an array of specializations in the biological sciences that share an emphasis on trans-disciplinary training with applications that enhance health and well-being. 

Overview

To achieve this goal, the IGDP in Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Biosciences serves as an umbrella portal for the entry and subsequent training of the next generation of researchers for academic, industrial, non-profit foundation, government, and other research entities in the biomedical sciences. Researchers will be trained across a wide range of specializations in the biological sciences that share the goal to elucidate mechanisms of action at the molecular, cellular, and organismal level, including disease.

The Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Biosciences program offered at Pennsylvania State University currently offers educational and research emphasis areas in Cell and Developmental Biology; Immunology and Infectious Disease; Molecular and Evolutionary Genetics; Molecular Medicine; and Molecular Toxicology and Neurobiology, but is structured to remain contemporary with evolving or emerging fields within the biological/health sciences. Incoming students enroll in core courses of instruction covering basic biochemistry and molecular biology of cellular processes; ethics; and current research topics related to the diverse pathological mechanisms that underlie disease etiologies in humans and animals. 

In addition, students take specialized courses associated with one of the above programmatic emphasis areas or the option, as well as elective courses that complement and support their research interests and foci.
