About

The power of science to improve the human condition has been clear since the days of Pasteur, Koch, Ramon y Cajal and other pioneers of modern biology and medicine. Almost all of the greatest advances in medicine derive from basic research and the Program in Pathobiology and Molecular Medicine provides opportunities for basic research. Yet, enough has been learned about the basic biology of diseases that it is also fulfilling to acquaint graduate students with some of the great clinical problems that, with new developments, may no longer be so daunting. Aided by recognition and support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and by awards from the NIH and other agencies, our program aims at a new approach to converting basic research into clinically relevant results. We aim at a new working order of Ph.D and MD scientists.
