Education

The Molecular & Cellular Biochemistry Department does not directly admit students to the Ph.D. program. We are part of a consortium of basic science departments in the University of Kentucky Medical Center that run a joint first year program, the IBS program, for Ph.D. students. First-year students in this program take classes together and rotate through laboratories spread throughout the Medical Center. The choice of rotations is made by the student, with the approval of the principal investigator running that laboratory, and can be in any of the participating departments. This gives students an opportunity to sample up to four different disciplines before settling on a final laboratory and department in May.
