• Research Areas and Associated Faculty

    The Molecular & Developmental Biology Graduate Program is an umbrella program that includes over 100 faculty representing 25 Divisions at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Students have the opportunity to conduct research across a broad spectrum of biomedical disciplines, ranging from basic studies of embryonic development to the development of diagnostics and therapeutics for a range of pediatric and adult diseases. Close links between clinicians and researchers allow constant reciprocity – bench-to-bedside translation of research findings into better treatments, and bedside-to-bench transfer of novel clinical observations to the research laboratory.
