Molecular Medicine and Mechanisms of Disease (M3D) PhD Program
The M3D PhD Program trains students to use advances in basic sciences to solve problems relevant to human disease; and to use insights from human disease processes to solve fundamental biological problems. Three core courses focus on mechanisms of disease, the impact of basic science on medicine, and human genetics, providing a rigorous intellectual foundation. Each student participates in Chief of Medicine rounds, and in a mentored clinical rotation, in the broad area of human genetics or in a more focused area relevant to the student's thesis research. Students also choose electives reflecting their own interests from the deep and varied menu offered by UW basic science and engineering departments. Thesis research is supervised by two mentors, one a basic scientist and the other a clinician scientist. Students complement their experimental work with exposure to relevant problems in the clinic. The M3D Program is designed for students to complete PhD training in five years, ready to take the next step in careers in academia, biotech, the pharmaceutical industry, education, publishing and public policy.
