Graduate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences

Saint Louis University School of Medicine


Graduate programs in the biomedical sciences saint louis university school of medicine

In 1998, the four Ph.D. granting programs in the biomedical sciences at the St. Louis University School of Medicine established a First-Year Core Curriculum for all entering doctoral students. All students apply to the Core Program and, upon acceptance, begin a year of multidisciplinary coursework and four formal laboratory rotations that lead to the selection of a graduate advisor and entry into one of the four, distinct Ph.D. programs. The first year courses focus on the basic biochemical, molecular, cellular and organismal aspects of the biomedical sciences. This prepares the student for more intensive, individualized instruction, unique to the discipline they choose to study further in the following years. Instructors come from all four Ph.D. programs and their charge is to introduce the students to the most recent findings in their fields including not only the current level of knowledge in the field, but also the methodologies used to study the major issues in their discipline. Our emphasis is on the preparation of technically skilled and thoughtful scientists for diverse careers in academia, industry or government.

The four Ph.D. programs that the students may access upon completion of their first year of study are:

Biochemistry and Molecular BiologyMolecular Microbiology and ImmunologyPathologyPharmacological and Physiological Sciences.

Research in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology reflects the strength and diversity of its faculty through a unifying focus of the study of host-pathogen interactions, especially in the area of virology. Areas of interest include viral pathogenesis, immunology, molecular and cellular biology, vaccine development (discovery and clinical trials), biodefense, and cancer gene therapy. The virology program is one of the strongest in the USA, and it encompasses research on adenoviruses, flaviviruses, hepatitis B and C viruses, herpesviruses (herpes simplex virus, Varicella Zoster virus), HIV, and poxviruses (including model studies for smallpox). Other research addresses parasites (T. cruzi), fungi, cell cycle regulation, programmed cell death (apoptosis), and the role of mitochondrial mutations in disease.

The Department of Pathology offers a graduate program in molecular pathobiology leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree. The faculty work closely with graduate students in the department to assist them in acquiring the requisite academic background and practical laboratory skills for successful research careers in academics, industry, medicine or government. Excellent research facilities for cellular and molecular studies in pathobiology are available in the department. Facilities include fluorescence and confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, tissue culture facilities, video image analysis, and an EM lab equipped with both scanning and transmission microscopes. Departmental faculty maintain research collaborations with colleagues in the academic and industrial community which further broadens opportunities and exposure to technical skills and research expertise for graduate students.
