Doctor of Philosophy in Biochemistry
General Program Information for PhD Candidates (including post-BA and post-MA PhD)
We’re pleased to announce the launching of a new interdisciplinary program called the Program in Biomedical Sciences (or PiBS for short) that will incorporate didactic coursework and biomedical research to prepare our graduates for career advancement. Our new Foundations in Biomedical Sciences (FiBS I) and (FiBS II) curricula will be integrated into this exciting, new program. In the first year, PhD students will participate in the FiBS I core curriculum while rotating in a number of research laboratories. As students progress through the program, they will have access to the FiBS II curiculum, which is dedicated to developing professional skills to assure that our PhDs and MD/PhDs are prepared for successful careers in academia, industry, local or federal government, or whereever they may choose to work after Boston University. After selection of a dissertation research laboratory, students will join the program/department with which the mentor is affiliated and continue advanced studies towards candidacy.
