The Cell, Molecular and Cancer Biology PhD program is an interdisciplinary graduate program that involves faculty researchers from multiple departments on the Indiana University School of Medicine—Bloomington campus. The emphasis of the program is on the fundamental molecular and cellular mechanisms that lead to the proliferative growth associated with cancer. The primary objective of this graduate program is to train independent research investigators who can make contributions to their field of knowledge while working in academic/government institutions or industry laboratories.
Students explore a multitude of other career possibilities while working toward their degree. Alumni from the Cell, Molecular and Cancer Biology graduate program have successful careers in biomedical research, both in university and industrial biotech settings.
