Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program

  • Program Growth

    Recent additions to the Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program at the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation mean an even brighter future for you.

    As funding from the National Institutes of Health and other sources continues to grow, so does our Faculty. Now you'll find even more opportunities to learn, contribute and advance your career.

    Research opportunities are expanding with new faculty in developmental biology, immunology, pulmonary biology, endocrinology and molecular medicine.

    Since 2000, the Division of Developmental Biology has added 10 new faculty to its ranks, continuing the trend of this Division being one of the largest developmental biology groups in the country.

    Dr. Chris Wylie is a world-renowned developmental biologist and a founding editor of the journal Development who was recruited in 2000 to build the division into an international leader in the field of developmental biology.

    The sequencing of the human genome has created exciting new capabilities in molecular and developmental biology - as well as disease prevention and treatment - that were unheard of just five years ago.

    Cincinnati Children's and the University of Cincinnati have made significant investments in state-of-the-art facilities for bioinformatics, functional genomics and proteomics. Our students and researchers are at the cutting edge of exploring information from the Human Genome Project.

    In addition, Cincinnati Children's continues to expand the amount of space it devotes to research. Our newest dedicated research facility, consisting of 520,000 square feet of wet and dry lab space, opened in 2000 adjacent to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

    But even that isn't enough; as of July 2002, the Research Foundation has access to additional dry research space in Children's newly acquired Campus on the former site of Bethesda Oak Hospital.

    In November 2008, Cincinnati Children's opened a new research facility that made our total add up to a million square feet of lab and office space.

    Join us as we work together to advance the frontiers of biomedical research.
