Applicant Information

Applicants to the PhD Program in Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology are expected to have a solid background in the biological sciences and chemistry. They should have demonstrated an aptitude for and dedication to a career in research, as evidenced by initiatives taken in college, summer research internships, and/or post-baccalaureate experience. Most successful applicants have taken classes in general and organic chemistry, physics, biochemistry and molecular biology. However, failure to take all of these expected courses will not prevent acceptance of otherwise highly qualified applicants. Previous laboratory research experience is highly desirable but not required. Students must take the general Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and submit these scores along with a complete application to the Jefferson Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.  Applications, including transcripts, GRE scores and three letters of recommendation, are reviewed by the BMP Program Admissions committee.
