Admission to the SBB Program

Selection Criteria

Graduate students are selected on the basis of prior academic achievement, as well as on degree of motivation and future promise for careers in scientific research and teaching. The Structural Biology and Biophysics Track confers only PhD degrees. Students entering the program enroll in an academically rigorous degree plan, tailored to their individual backgrounds and interests, with strong emphasis on independent laboratory research.


Students admitted to our program, who are qualified, are guaranteed a generous graduate assistant-ship support throughout their graduate career, as long as they make satisfactory progress toward their degree.
