The Department of Biochemistry offers PhD and combined MD-PhD degrees. Our graduate program is housed within Graduate Medical Sciences at the Boston University School of Medicine.  Our program is part of Boston University’s Program in Biomedical Sciences (PiBS).  PiBS is a so-called “umbrella program” which provides rigorous training by integrating interdisciplinary biomedical coursework with  comprehensive research training in our state-of-the-art laboratories and career development.  In addition to its core curriculum, PiBS offers students the opportunity to explore a variety of research areas by participating in laboratory rotations to help determine the research area that will be the focus of the PhD dissertation.  In addition, we have a robust professional development program enabling students to explore a variety of biomedical career options.
