Secondary Application to Other UW Programs
You may also wish to have your MCB application to undergo secondary consideration by other affiliate biomedical graduate programs listed below. Choosing to do so will not change the status of your MCB application. No additional fees or materials for your application are needed if you opt for secondary consideration by other programs.
The graduate program in Biology emphasizes integrative approaches to studying fundamental and applied problems in developmental, cellular and molecular biology, as well as other areas, and includes faculty working with such model systems as zebrafish, Arabidopsis, Drosophila, protists, marine invertebrates and more. Emphasis is placed on a highly personalized, flexible program of study emphasizing practical skills, professional development and collegial interactions with faculty, students and postdocs representing exceptionally diverse disciplines and backgrounds.
Molecular Medicine and Mechanisms of Disease Program
Physiology & Biophysics
Physiology is the study of the physical and chemical mechanisms by which cells and organs work, and encompasses processes from the molecular and cellular level to the driving of behavior. This discipline has a long and distinguished history and constitutes the cornerstone of medical research.
Biophysics is also a diverse discipline, based on the use of physical methods to study biological problems. This includes subject areas as wide-ranging as the development of tools for manipulating single molecules in vivo to the application of information theory to understand neural coding.
