Prospective graduate students should have an undergraduate degree in any of the Biological, Chemical or Physical sciences. Applicants are recommended to have completed courses in biology, organic chemistry, physics and mathematics. Candidates with deficiencies in any area may be admitted, but such deficiencies may lead to requirements for additional course work during graduate study. An advisory system in the program will help students in planning their course of study. Prospective students are encouraged to contact program faculty in areas of their research interest.
