Driskill Graduate Training Program in Life Sciences

Degree Types: PhD

The Walter S. and Lucienne Driskill Graduate Training Program in Life Sciences (DGP) combines graduate study in biochemistry and structural biology, cancer biology, cell biology, developmental biology,, genetics and genomics, immunology, microbiology, neurobiology, pharmacology, systems biology, and biomedical informatics into a single program. More than 140 faculty members are available as dissertation research advisors, and their interests cover a wide range of research in contemporary biomedical and life sciences.

The DGP provides each student the flexibility needed to design a personal course of study, pursue individual research interests, and choose an appropriate thesis advisor. The wide range of research opportunities within the DGP serves students well - both those who enter graduate school committed to a specific research field and those who begin with many potential interests.  Flexibility and ease in pursuing diverse interests are the hallmarks of graduate training in the DGP.
