    Journal Club and Weekly Seminars

    At Children's Hospital Medical Center of Cincinnati, students in the Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program attend weekly journal clubs encompassing many areas of biomedical research. In these meetings, students learn how to critically evaluate scientific data with the guidance of faculty mentors and senior graduate students.

    Every year the students invite a top-name scientist from around the world to present a seminar. Past speakers have been Nobel laureates and members of the National Academy of Sciences.

    In weekly lunches, students host speakers for the Children's Hospital Research Foundation and Developmental Biology Seminar Series. Students have commented that these lunches are a great way to get to know some of the top scientists from around the world.

    Course Work

    The Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program's academic curriculum is centered on a series of courses emphasizing molecular genetics, molecular and cellular biology and developmental biology.

    In addition, a wide variety of elective courses are offered throughout the University of Cincinnati to meet almost any scientific interest. Most students fulfill all of their course requirements within the first 18 months, allowing for greater focus on laboratory research and the completion of thesis-related experiments.
