The Molecular Biosciences program is offered by Washington State University . The School of Molecular Biosciences offers many exciting opportunities for graduate students to explore the vast range of life science research. Representative disciplines include biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, structural biology and virology.

Career Opportunities:

Alumni have gone on to opportunities and successful careers in academic and industrial science, especially in the biotechnology industry. 

Career opportunities include positions in food, agricultural, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries, private or government laboratories and departments, and nonprofit institutions such as clinical and hospital laboratories and research institutes. With the advent of the “biological revolution,” which will continue well into the 21st century, new opportunities with links to the worlds of public, health, business, law, and government are ever expanding.

Programme Structure

  • Students entering into the School of Molecular Biosciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine will pursue an interdisciplinary M.S. degree in Molecular Biosciences. Entering students do rotations through three research laboratories to choose a dissertation/thesis advisor. 
  • Over 50 research laboratories (see the faculty interest page) are associated with the School of Molecular Biosciences, investigating problems in diverse systems, including bacteria, yeast, plants, and animals. Graduates acquire a breadth and depth of knowledge that allows them to adapt quickly to new information and approaches developed in the rapidly changing field of molecular biosciences.
