The Molecular Biosciences Graduate Program: a member of the Integrated Programs in Biomedical Sciences (iPBS) in the College of Veterinary Medicine

The College of Veterinary Medicine now offers a single gateway to three graduate programs named “Integrated Programs in Biomedical Sciences” or iPBS. As a large umbrella, iPBS will offer a single portal of admission to students who wish to pursue studies in one of three PhD degree granting programs: Immunology and Infectious Disease within the Allen School of Global Animal Health and the Department of Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology, Molecular Biosciences within the School of Molecular Biosciences, and Neuroscience within the Department of Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience.  

The program begins in mid-July with a Professional Development Leadership Retreat followed by a five week laboratory rotation.  In the Fall Semester, all iPBS graduate students will take a common core curriculum and complete two laboratory rotations.  After completing their first semester, students will matriculate into one of the three PhD programs described above.  

As an iPBS trainee you have the opportunity to pursue your academic training within a curriculum that promotes self-directed learning and inspires innovative research; advances your professional growth through leadership training and specialized longitudinal development programs; and further develops your mathematical and statistical fluency skills.

Application Process:  access the WSU Graduate Application use the following link: WSU Graduate School Application

Once you have created an account, migrate to Integrated Programs in Biomedical Sciences. Select one of the three iPBS Programs.  Note that Molecular Biosciences also requires a Supplemental Application. Your program choice is not binding and instead used to streamline the application process through an initial area of interest.
