Welcome to the website for the University of Montana's graduate programs under the Molecular and Biomedical Sciences (MBS) umbrella: the single point of entry for information about Master's and Doctoral degree programs in:

  • Biochemistry and Biophysics
  • Cellular, Molecular and Microbial Biology
  • Medicinal Chemistry
  • Neuroscience
  • Pharmaceutical Sciences and Drug Design
  • Toxicology

A single application with one application fee allows prospective students to apply to one or more of these graduate programs. First year students in any of the Molecular and Biomedical Sciences programs pursue coursework tailored to a single degree program, but may undertake research rotations with faculty in any of the MBS graduate programs. This is the first stop to exciting interdisciplinary and collaborative research in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.

This website is a resource for prospective students to discover the world-class research conducted by our University of Montana faculty and the diversity of research disciplines represented among our Graduate Programs. For more information, visit the websites of the individual graduate programs where prospective students will find information about specific program curricula and learn about the research interests of program faculty members. We encourage prospective students to contact faculty directly to learn more about the research in their labs.

Finally, prospective students can find information on how to submit an application for graduate study for all of the programs under the Molecular and Biomedical Sciences umbrella under How to Apply.

Check out the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Network, where individuals in disparate fields of study and/or geographic locales can easily find opportunities to contribute to research on the same system or concept.
