The graduate program in Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology offers advanced training appropriate for a large variety of careers in the fields of biology and medical sciences that include molecular and structural pharmacology and signal transduction; pharmacology and physiology of neural and organ systems; cellular physiology and biophysics; and translational pharmacology and physiology that link basic science and medicine in the treatment of disease. Although general GREs are required for entry into the Graduate School, our program's admissions committee does not use GRE scores as an admissions cutoff. We do consider the scores, but only in combination with more powerful predictors of success, such as letters of recommendation, research experience, personal statements, academic performance and interviews. Programs of study and research are developed individually in consultation with the student's advisor and advisory committees and are designed to ensure expertise in the student's principal research area, while establishing a strong foundation in the broad fields of pharmacology and physiology. Admission is ordinarily limited to applicants for the Ph.D., but admissions for a fifth-year master's degree only may also be permitted.
