Experimental Pathology Graduate Program

The UC Irvine Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine offers a graduate program in experimental pathology. Application to this program is through the School of Biological Sciences, which offers a multidisciplinary graduate program under the general heading of Cellular and Molecular Biosciences (CMB).

Members of the Pathology faculty participate in this program, which includes one-year of intensive academic instruction in:

  • Biochemistry
  • Genetics
  • Molecular biology

The program also includes an opportunity to rotate through two or more research laboratories. In addition, students may select a specific area of interest from 10 areas of academic study, one of which is experimental pathology.

This research area empahsizes experimental approaches to better understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms of disease. After the first year, students interested in Experimental Pathology join the laboratories of faculty within the department or the laboratories of affiliated faculty.

Following successful completed of the curriculum and research leading to a dissertation thesis, students will receive a Ph.D. in the School of Medicine Biomedical Sciences graduate program with a concentration in experimental pathology.
