You have an unquenchable thirst to understand the most basic elements of life—the chemistry of our being, our fundamental molecular structure, and how our cells self-renew and regenerate. At UAB, we'll equip you to make discoveries, preparing you for a career in research, teaching, science policy, science writing, and more.

Naturally, to prepare you for success in this field, your education will include extensive hands-on experiences in state-of-the-art methodologies, studying a wide range of biological and pathobiological processes. In fact, we're going to give you important laboratory skills to go with crucial communication techniques that are vital to presenting research in both oral or published form. How? By giving you access to a large pool of mentors from across UAB, all of who are renowned experts in a variety of research areas. Not only that, but with lab rotations, journal clubs, advanced writing courses, and other experiences, you'll have access to all the resources you need to become a successful researcher.
