Molecular medicine is an interdisciplinary approach to human biology that integrates and applies advances in the basic biomedical and genomic sciences and in biotechnology to the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human disease. The Molecular Medicine Training Program (MMTP) at the University of Washington is designed to train Ph.D. researchers to use advances in basic sciences to solve problems relevant to human disease; and, conversely, to use insights from human disease processes to solve fundamental biological problems. Training in Molecular Medicine incorporates three key elements: case-based courses, clinical exposure, and dual mentorship of Ph.D. research.
The MMTP is open to graduate students in Ph.D. programs in the Departments of Biochemistry, Bioengineering, Genome Sciences, Immunology, Microbiology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology & Biophysics, and in the interdisciplinary Molecular and Cellular Biology Program.
The MMTP is overseen by faculty representing one of the participating departments. Please contact any member of the Executive Committee if you have questions about our program!
The Molecular Medicine Program is committed to recruiting diverse participants, including students with a broad spectrum of scientific interests, students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, as well as students with physical or mental impairment that limits any major life activity. See our Diversity Resources Page for more information.
