The Brandeis Life Sciences offers two programs for graduate students interested in Molecular and Cell Biology:

  • Ph.D. Program
  • M.S. Program

The Brandeis Graduate Program in Molecular and Cell Biology offers excellent training in a wide range of biological studies. The research interests of our faculty are roughly grouped into four major areas: Molecular Biology, Genetics and Development; Structural and Cell Biology, and Neuroscience. In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of our program, many of our faculty also participate in other Brandeis Ph.D. degree programs, such as Biochemistry and Neurobiology. The faculty in the Molecular and Cell Biology program are interested in a wide range of research topics including DNA replication and repair; gene expression and regulation; cytoskeleton and membrane traffic; neuronal synapse formation and homeostasis; molecular basis of behavior and sensory processing.
