Genes and Genomes PhD

Why decode genes and genomes.

Our program is designed to equip the next generation of researchers with the skills to tackle challenges in biology, medicine, and computational biology, using new technologies that exploit genomic data. The program will give students a breadth of knowledge across wet and dry labs while focussing in depth in their own project.

While the sequence of the human genome is largely known, we are still a long way from understanding how this information translates into function. The biological functions of many human genes are largely unknown as is how non-coding elements regulate their expression. Moreover, gene function and expression varies across different cell types and across an individual’s lifetime.

Substantial genetic diversity exists both within and across human populations. There is a need to understand the consequences of genetic variation underlying human complex traits to better understand, diagnose and treat human disease.

The rapid advancement in genomic sequencing technology is generating large genomic datasets across diverse cell and tissue types. This advance in data generation has created a need to develop methods to analyse data captured on multiple different types of genomic platforms. Integrating this data will reveal the universal and specific principles of genome regulation underlying health and disease.

We are beginning to see the use of genomic information in clinical diagnosis and treatment. This represents a move towards a “precision medicine” approach, where an individual’s genetic, epigenetic and environmental risk factors are used to optimize prevention and treatment of disease. Such progress requires advancements in mathematical and statistical models to better predict an individual’s risk of future disease.

This program will bring together a group of multi-disciplinary researchers to address these challenges, driving our understanding of the genome and a future with better diagnosis and treatment of human disease.

The Department of Molecular Medicine aims to pair the brightest minds with the best research infrastructure under a tailored mentoring approach. 

In research our core vision is to integrate across the scales how processes at the molecular level – the ‘bottom-up’ perspective of single-molecule research – drive function at the systems level – the ‘top-down’ perspective of cell biology and physiology. In line with the Health25 strategy, the Department of Molecular Medicine places the wellbeing and success of our people at the heart of our work. In doing so, we aim to foster a vibrant and inclusive research environment.

We’re united by a common belief in the pursuit of innovative scientific research. We share a commitment to visionary science that involves taking big leaps in discovery and innovation. To be poised to make such big leaps, we have fostered a collaborative environment in a shared space where individual expertise, skills and perspectives can combine to advance our common goals. In education, we’ve established research collaborations and contributions to teaching with partners in the Kirby Institute, Garvan, BABS, Chemistry and Physics.

We have a significant international footprint with numerous links to world class institutions and researchers. Our activities not only address biomedical problems – including force sensing in pain, immune cell swarming in cancer, subversion of innate immunity by HIV or SARS-CoV-2, and protein aggregation in Parkinson's disease – but also aim to drive technological advances, such as future approaches to DNA-sequencing, cutting-edge microscopy techniques, and novel methods of data analysis.

Cellular and Molecular Medicine, PhD

School of medicine.

The Graduate Training Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine prepares scientists for laboratory research at the cellular and molecular level with a direct impact on the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human diseases. The Ph.D. graduates of the program obtain rigorous training in scientific research and develop a thorough knowledge of human biology and human diseases.

This program grew out of a need for graduate training at the interface between medicine and the traditional basic science disciplines. Rapid progress in cellular and molecular biology has strongly impacted clinical medicine, offering insights about the fundamental causes of many diseases. Translational research—often described as “bench-to-bedside” studies—accelerates the discovery of new treatments directed at the basic mechanisms of disorder and disease. Thus, the goal of this program is to train scientists who will make discoveries in the laboratory that can be applied expeditiously to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. New technology allows scientists to identify genetic and molecular defects causing or predisposing to disease. The trainees in this program are working precisely at this interface between science and medicine to contribute to the long-term well-being of society.

Students will work in well-equipped laboratories of approximately 140 program faculty located throughout the medical school campus. These researchers are supported by many shared facilities including microscopy, molecular biology, and protein chemistry.

Financial Aid

The program is supported by a combination of monies from the Lucille P. Markey Charitable Trust and an NIH training grant. Each student is provided a stipend, health and dental insurance, and tuition throughout their years in the program. The program covers these benefits during the students’ first year; in subsequent years, the research advisor is responsible.

Admission Requirements

The mission of the CMM program is to recruit and train outstanding PhD candidates in translational research. We use a holistic approach in evaluating applicants, to ensure the best fit between our training program and trainees. Evidence of prior research experience is paramount in the admissions process, along with letters from research mentors. A bachelor’s degree from a qualified college or university is required. Applicants are expected to have taken the following courses: biology, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, and calculus. Cell biology and/or biochemistry is recommended. Passage of the TOEFL is required for all students whose undergraduate instruction was conducted in a language other than English. CMM does not require or review GRE scores in the admissions process.

CMM draws from the top of an extremely strong and deep pool of candidates.  Although we do not use score cut-offs, the average accepted student has a GPA of 3.71. Our class size varies between 20-24, and includes in addition to PhD candidates, trainees in dual MD/PhD, DVM/PhD programs and Clinical Fellows.  Yield on admissions offers is high, ranging from 45-69%, with an average of 55% of offers resulting in acceptance.

The Vivian Thomas Scholars Initiative (VTSI) is dedicated to nurturing, mentoring and connecting the exceptional diverse talent that exists at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and other minority serving institutions. (MSIs) to STEM graduate education and future leadership in STEM careers.  The application for VTSI and the supplemental questions are found within the School of Medicine application for those interested in applying.

GEM (The National Consortium for Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Engineering and Science) award fellowships to eligible students who pursue graduate education in science or engineering.  For more information, please visit GEM Fellowship webpage .  Prospective fellows apply to GEM and the sponsoring institutions at the same time.  Potential candidates must indicate on the JHU application that they have received or are being considered for a GEM Fellowship.

Office of the Graduate Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine 1830 E. Monument Street, Suite 2-103 Telephone: (410) 614-0391; (410) 614-3640

For questions not addressed on these pages, please email [email protected].

Program Requirements

Students must complete successfully the following courses:

Students are required to take four electives to further broaden their experience in cellular and molecular medicine during the duration of their studies.  Mandatory one elective out of the four required must be a Biostatistics course.  Rigor and Reproducibility in Research (3R's) principles are integrated throughout the program's coursework.  The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) ethics training taken in year one fulfills a graduation requirement.   An Ethics refresher course includes attending several Research Integrity Colloquium lectures each year.

Students are expected to perform research rotations in at least three different laboratories culminating with the selection of a thesis advisor to begin original research leading to their doctoral dissertation. All rotations must be performed in the laboratories of CMM faculty members.

Additionally, the program requires students to actively participate in the OPTIONS Career Curriculum , managed by the Professional Development and Career Office, that provides protected time for students to develop their career goals and prepare for their future. Through interactive workshops, students discover careers of interest, develop career-specific skills and build a professional network while connecting with fellow trainees with similar interests.

A University-mandated Doctor of Philosophy Board Oral Examination must be completed by the end of the second year of study. Annual thesis committee meetings are held until such time as the thesis committee believes the student is ready to write their doctoral dissertation. The dissertation is based on the student’s novel research; a public seminar of thesis work is a graduation requirement.

English language requirements

Course structure.

A research degree doesn't have a taught structure, giving you the chance to investigate your chosen topic in real depth and reach a profound understanding. In communicating that understanding, through a thesis or other means, you have a rare opportunity to generate knowledge. A research degree allows you to develop new high-level skills, enhance your professional development and build new networks. It can open doors to many careers.

We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision for you. We'll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities as described on our website and in line with your contract with us. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to significant disruption, we'll let our applicants and students know as soon as possible.

Components are the blocks of study that make up your course. A component may have a set module which you must study, or a number of modules from which you can choose.

Each component has a status and carries a certain number of credits towards your qualification.

The modules that are available for you to choose for each component will depend on several factors, including which modules you have chosen for other components, which modules you have completed in previous years of your course, and which term the module is taught in.

Modules are the individual units of study for your course. Each module has its own set of learning outcomes and assessment criteria and also carries a certain number of credits.

In most cases you will study one module per component, but in some cases you may need to study more than one module. For example, a 30-credit component may comprise of either one 30-credit module, or two 15-credit modules, depending on the options available.

Modules may be taught at different times of the year and by a different department or school to the one your course is primarily based in. You can find this information from the module code . For example, the module code HR100-4-FY means:

COMPONENT 01: COMPULSORY

This module is for PhD students who are completing the research portions of their thesis.

View Biological Science - Research on our Module Directory

The aim of undertaking your PhD within our School of Life Sciences is to train you to become independent researchers who can critically assess research work, and who have a comprehensive understanding of at least one area of biology.

Our PhD programme is usually three to four years duration and all our students are initially registered as MPhil students, then transfer to the PhD in the first half of their second year of study if they have made satisfactory progress.

Dissertation

Within our School of Life Sciences, you attend two formal supervisory board meetings each year, where you submit literature reviews and research reports to the Board members. At these meetings, the documents are discussed with you and your progress is assessed.

We encourage PhD students to submit within three years and certainly expect completion of PhDs within a four-year period.
