Integrative Pathobiology, Master of Science School of Veterinary Medicine

Graduate Study

The Graduate Group in Integrative Pathobiology (GGIP) offers programs of study and research leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and participates in joint Ph.D./M.D. and Ph.D./D.V.M. programs. GGIP emphasizes advanced knowledge of the causes, progression, and resolution of disease processes in humans and animals from molecular to global scale.


This program is primarily for applicants with a strong background in basic biomedical sciences. Admission requires an undergraduate degree (B.S. or B.A.) in a biological science, which should include prerequisite coursework in statistics, physics, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and cellular biology. Upper division courses in molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics are encouraged.
