Richard Libby, PhD
Program Director

The Cell Biology of Disease Graduate Program and Ph.D. in Pathology is a multidisciplinary graduate program that is designed for the student who is interested in applying the latest advances in cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology to the understanding of human disease mechanisms. We have designed the program for maximum flexibility to take advantage of our diverse faculty and multi-departmental character.

Students entering the Pathways of Human Disease Graduate Program will be prepared for successful, independent careers in research and teaching. Through coursework, seminars, and research experiences, the student is well-prepared to address the complex but rewarding problems in human disease in an academic, industrial or governmental setting.

Please browse our website to learn more about the educational and research opportunities available to our Ph.D. students.
