Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department faculty mentor M.S. and Ph.D. students in the College of Medicine interdisciplinary program (IDP) in medical sciences. Students interested in pursuing a doctoral degree can view specific features of the biochemistry and molecular biology concentration at http://biochem.med.ufl.edu/ and http://idp.med.ufl.edu. For admission information, visit the IDP website. Department faculty also mentor Ph.D. students in other college programs and participate actively in the research and teaching functions of various centers such as the Center for Epigenetics and the Center for Structural Biology.
The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department also offers a combined BS/MS program that allows students to earn both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree at an accelerated pace by counting 12 credit hours of approved courses towards both degrees. Students who are Interdisciplinary Science majors with a focus in Biochemistry or majoring in a related field and doing research with a faculty member in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology are eligible to apply. This program is considered to be a 4 + 1 program because students may finish both degrees within 5 years. To be considered with this program, students need to work with the department at the beginning of their junior year or earlier to identify courses that can count towards both degrees.
