Boise State University is an emerging leader in innovation.
The Biomolecular Sciences Ph.D. program offers students hands-on learning and research.
The Biomolecular Sciences Ph.D. program offers a high quality education taught cooperatively by faculty from the departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Physics
Boise State University’s Biomolecular Sciences Graduate Programs offers students the opportunity to earn a M.S. or Ph.D. in Biomolecular Sciences with an average time to degree of 4.58 years +/- 0.5 years for the Ph.D. This interdisciplinary program is the first of its kind in Idaho, and is designed to train scientists to work as part of an interdisciplinary team to address challenges of global importance while preparing graduates for challenging and rewarding careers in today’s biomedical and biotechnology workforce.
This multi-disciplinary program fuses physical sciences and the basic molecular life sciences into a single curriculum, combining studies from traditional areas of science to solve important problems that transcend boundaries between the single disciplines of biology, chemistry, physics, and computer science. This research intensive program removes traditional barriers of interdisciplinary thinking, training and research at the interface between the life sciences, chemistry, physics and computational biology.
From conducting basic cancer research to developing new nanotechnologies, therapeutics, and biofuels, the research happening in our faculty labs is making a difference. Our laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation and our research funding and commercialization opportunities have reached new heights.
