About

The faculty associated with the Graduate Group in Endocrinology leading to the M.A. and the Ph.D degrees have diverse interests representing endocrinology in the broadest sense: chemical mediators in the living world directed by autocrine, paracrine, endocrine and ectohormonal factors.

Overview

The main goal of our program is to engage students in the interdisciplinary aspects of the field of Endocrinology through seminars, courses and our diverse faculty research perspectives that range from structural, molecular and cellular endocrinology through organismal and comparative endocrinology to chemical ecology. Our program faculty encompasses hormone-oriented research programs such as cancer biology, signal transduction, drug design, membrane biology, virology, metabolism, differentiation, morphogenesis, toxicology and gene transcription.

The programme

Graduates from our Endocrinology program have transitioned into careers in a variety of fields including education, research in both academic and industry settings, government regulation, and private business. Students who plan to work for higher degrees in endocrinology at Berkeley will be guided by a graduate adviser and by the professor who directs their research (mentor).

The Graduate Advisor and your mentor will ascertain whether students have met the minimum requirements, will recommend to prospective candidates what additional courses to take, will decide with them the fields to be covered in the qualifying examinations, and will act generally in an advisory capacity.

Programme Structure

All students are required to defend the following two areas on the oral exam:

  • Organismal endocrinology (either mammalian or comparative).
  • Molecular and cellular endocrinology.
Two of the following list of 12 subject areas of plant and or animal biology must also be defended:
  • Anatomy
  • Biochemistry
  • Cell Biology
  • Developmental Biology
  • Ethology
  • Evolutionary Biology7. Genetics
  • Immunology
  • Molecular Biology
  • Neurobiology
  • Physiology
  • Tumor Biology
Some other topics may also be acceptable, but approval by a majority of the guidance committee is required in such cases.
