The Department of Molecular Medicine is committed to training the future leaders in virology, gene therapy and cell therapy.
The Virology and Gene Therapy track of the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. Program offers a highly productive, interactive research environment to develop as an independent investigator. Enthusiastic faculty members have primary interests in virology, viral vectors and gene therapy. These areas overlap with the fields of biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, genetics and immunology.
The Department of Molecular Medicine faculty actively participates in Mayo Clinic's educational mission through the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. This educational mission is supported by the unique environment and student and campus life that students, researchers and clinicians experience at Mayo Clinic.
