About

The Molecular Medicine program of the Case Western Reserve University is a unique collaborative graduate training opportunity that integrates medical knowledge into graduate training.

Overview

Earn a PhD in Molecular Medicine

The Molecular Medicine PhD program is the graduate arm of the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. It is a unique collaborative graduate training opportunity that integrates basic science and medical knowledge. The program is supported by a NIH T32 grant and students receive full tuition, core textbooks, a generous stipend and health insurance.

The goal of the Molecular Medicine program of the Case Western Reserve University is to produce scientists trained in translational research: basic or applied research relevant to human health and disease that can lead to new understanding of disease, clinical and diagnostic tools, medications, and therapies.

Students train rigorously to apply basic science discoveries to human health and to the causes and treatments of human disease. The mastery of competencies necessary to translate scientific observations from the research bench to clinical care is the focus of this PhD program. Graduates will be well prepared to collaborate with physicians and for the challenge of using molecular and cellular biology to advance human health.
