These disciplines encompass a set of complementary approaches to life processes. Their common objective is to understand how structure and function define intra- and inter-cellular processes. Students in this track will receive a broad, yet personalized, scientific education. Such training will expand the students capacity for scholarly activity and independent creative thinking. The MBGC Track emphasizes practical preparation for scientific careers in both academia and industry. For additional information, admissions committee co-chairs: Drs. Melissa Rogers and Liz Raveche, Cell Biology, Neuroscience and Physiology (CBNP) Track Neuroscience Stem Cell Biology Biophysics Cardiovascular Biology Physiology Molecular Pharmacology This CBNP Track offers a flexible curriculum and research opportunities to give students the ability to explore intersections across the disciplines of neuroscience, physiology, biophysics, cardiovascular biology, molecular pharmacology and stem cell biology. During 3 semesters of integrated coursework, students will take 3 laboratory research rotations and select mentors for focused thesis research. Students who earn Ph.D. degrees in the CBMP track will be positioned to continue their careers performing the interdisciplinary and translational systems biology research that will epitomize the future of biomedical research. For additional information, admissions committee chair: Dr. Kevin Beck, Infection, Immunity and Inflammation (I 3 ) Immunology Microbiology Infectious Disease Oral Biology The I 3 Track of is ideal for students interested in training for basic and translational research careers in immunology, microbiology, and microbial and host pathogenesis. The coursework for I 3 (includes introductory and advanced courses taught in lectures and small, Socratic group formats) comprises the first 15 months of the program and provides the theoretical bases for molecular biologic, biochemical, cell biologic, and organismal approaches to studying infection, immunity, and inflammation. Following coursework, I 3 students will be prepared to critically evaluate and implement these approaches in their Ph.D. dissertation projects. Students will select a mentor and project from among the I 3 faculty and will be positioned to continue their careers as leaders in biomedical research. For additional information, admissions committee chair: Dr. George Yap, Biomedical Engineering (Joint Program with New Jersey Institute of Technology) A Ph.D degree program in Biomedical Engineering is jointly offered and awarded by UMDNJ and the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
