About

Students who wish to begin in-depth study of the molecular basis in any of a variety of fields, including development, gene expression, immunology, pathogenesis, disease, virology, and evolution, can do so through the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology program at the University of California, Irvine (UCI).

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The program of study emphasizes laboratory experience and its integration with basic theory. 

This is accomplished in three ways: first, through coordination between the advanced courses in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology , and laboratory courses in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology which provide students with the basic laboratory skills and an appreciation for the experimental foundations of the field; second, through advanced laboratories in Immunology and Virology which provide students with the opportunity to develop cutting edge research skills; and third, by emphasizing independent research sponsored by a participating faculty member. 

Educational Opportunity

The program encourages the research interests of students in subdisciplines other than immunology or virology by offering the opportunity to substitute one year of independent research for the advanced laboratory.

The major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from University of California, Irvine (UCI) is designed to provide students with the appropriate tools and training to successfully pursue graduate degrees that emphasize basic scientific research, including Ph.D. and M.S. training as well as combined M.D./Ph.D. programs. 

In addition, and particularly with the explosive growth in biotechnology and its significant influence in everyday life, graduates could use their backgrounds very effectively to pursue careers in business, education, law, and public affairs.
