Graduate Students
Research Opportunities
The Department offers research opportunities in structural biology, biophysical research and molecular mechanisms of systems relevant to health and disease.
We are part of the multidisciplinary Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences. Students have the opportunity to explore research in multiple disciplines during the first year of training.

Applications are due February 1.

Summer Undergraduate Research
Doisy Undergraduate Scholar Summer Research Program
The application deadline for the 2015 Doisy Undergraduate Biochemistry Scholar Summer Research Program was January 28, 2015.

The Program is meant to promote the research opportunities available in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Saint Louis University among undergraduate students interested in pursuing Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. training in areas relevant to Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Molecular Biology.
