Cellular, Molecular, Developmental Biology and Biophysics
The Program in Cell, Molecular, Developmental Biology, and Biophysics (CMDB) cross-trains doctoral students in the areas of molecular biology, cellular biology, developmental biology, and biophysics.
The CMDB program includes faculty from Johns Hopkins University’s departments of biology, biophysics, and chemistry, as well as from the Carnegie Institution for Science Department of Embryology.
A program of study leading to the PhD degree is open to students who are candidates for, or who already have, the bachelor’s or master’s degree in the biological or physical sciences.
To be admitted, the applicant should have had either a thorough training in the fundamentals of biology and both organic chemistry and general physics, or a broad training in the physical sciences and mathematics. Special attention is given to the applicant’s quality of scholarship and his or her promise as an investigator.
