Institute for Molecular Medicine & Infectious Disease Graduate Program in Molecular Medicine

The interdisciplinary graduate program in molecular medicine (IGP) is an educational research training program that serves as an integral component of the Institute's efforts to enhance the education, research and development of Drexel University College of Medicine.

The IGP in molecular medicine is a graduate program that provides an enhanced training environment for the education of biomedical scientists who will ultimately be involved in solving basic problems in the molecular and clinical sciences relevant to the prevention, treatment, and cure of cancer, metabolic disorders, infectious diseases, and a wide range of genetic and immunologic disorders. The program strives to provide an integrated research training environment that will interface the general disciplines of medicine, biology, immunology, infectious disease, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, and engineering in general.

The program is designed to complement existing graduate programs within the College of Medicine and serve as a bridge program between the College of Medicine graduate programs and other Drexel graduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering and School of Biomedical Engineering. Program training faculty and graduate students in the participating academic units are positioned at a number of Drexel campuses including University City, New College Building in Center City and Queen Lane in East Falls, with additional training faculty and students located at the Fox Chase Cancer Research Center.

Opportunities in clinical genomic sciences are also available at the Center for Genomic Sciences at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. Since training faculty and students are positioned at a number of campuses located in the Greater Philadelphia area and possibly across the Commonwealth in Pittsburgh, the program is highly flexible to optimize education and research training at each location. The program strives to enhance collaborative interdisciplinary research and training efforts across all Drexel colleges, schools, and campuses with respect to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human disease. The program is administrated by an advisory committee comprising at least one member representing each participating college, school, and/or campus and chaired by the program director.
