About this course
Experimental therapeutics is the integration of basic and applied sciences focused on the study of and development of new treatments for human disease. Research in experimental therapeutics seeks to understand human diseases from the molecular level to the whole organism in order to develop rational approaches for new pharmacological treatments. In addition, experimental therapeutics includes the development of new therapies through systematic investigation at increasing levels of complexity ranging from individual molecules and proteins, to cellular and tissue based assays and to the whole organism. The purpose of the program is to train students at the doctoral level who can translate discoveries in the laboratory to therapies in a clinical setting.
The curriculum for the Experimental Therapeutics Ph.D. program includes required courses, electives, and a dissertation. Satisfactory overall performance is expected on a written qualifying examination, administered before starting the dissertation research. A grade of B- or higher is expected to be maintained for the required courses. A grade of B- or higher is also required for all of the prerequisite and co-requisite courses. An overall GPA of 3.0 or higher must be maintained.
