Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program

  • Research at Cincinnati Children's

    When you choose to continue your studies in the Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati, you're joining a tradition of excellence and success at the Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation.

    And you'll become part of a program that is second nationally in National Institutes of Health funding among full-service children's hospitals. What does this mean to you as a prospective student?

    • Training here carries weight after graduation.
      The Research Foundation is internationally recognized as one of the nation's top advanced pediatric care and research institutions. Studying here will only increase your marketability after graduation.
    • Researching here makes a difference. The interweaving of basic and clinical research, patient care and education here creates a unique environment for students to experience a clinical setting. It also offers the opportunity to translate basic research into care that makes a difference for children.
    • Growing programs yield even more opportunities.
      The already well-established Research Foundation is continuing to grow -- both in funding and in space -- and that keeps us on the leading edge. As a result, researchers and students alike have access to the most sophisticated equipment and facilities, both here and in the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
    • Cutting-edge research means using cutting-edge techniques. Researchers in the Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program are devoted to understanding the molecular basis of developmental processes. Faculty use a wide variety of experimental approaches in state-of-the-art facilities to address basic molecular and developmental questions and to study related areas of human disease.
    • Researchers here are recognized, funded, and published
      The program's 50-plus faculty members are internationally recognized and well-funded, generating more than $12 million in grant support and publishing more than 150 papers annually. Since students work directly with faculty, you stand a very good chance of being involved in those publications. In addition, top MDB students are often supported by NIH training grants in organogenesis, endocrinology, teratology and pulmonary and cardiovascular biology.
    • The program has earned the respect of educators. The Ohio Board of Regents has reviewed and ranked the program as one of only five graduate programs in the State of Ohio that competes at the highest national level.
