Graduate Education

The Department of Genetics, Cell Biology and Anatomy hosts the Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology (MGCB) doctoral program, which is part of the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences (IGPBS) at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.  The department also offers a research-based MS program, a MS in Medical Anatomy, and the Anatomy teaching track PhD program.

Each program has a distinct purpose. The research track PhD program is designed to provide a comprehensive research and classroom experience in genetics and cell biology for students who wish to pursue careers as independent researchers and/or educators at the university level.  The Anatomy teaching track PhD program is designed to train students to teach in the anatomical sciences as well as to conduct robust biomedical research. The MS in Medical Anatomy program is designed as a stepping stone to professional school or the Anatomy teaching track PhD program.  By contrast, the research-based MS program is designed for students who wish to explore a career in research and are considering a research-based PhD program.
