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.


Students applying to this program have varied backgrounds. Some hold professional degrees (e.g., D.V.M., M.D., or D.D.S.) while others apply after completion of an undergraduate degree.
