Who We Are

The Program in Chemical Biology is a free-standing program leading to a Ph.D. degree in Chemical Biology. This program is not a concentration within any particular department at the University of Michigan, but rather is an independent graduate program that involves faculty from several different departments and units within the University of Michigan (Chemistry, Biological Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacology, and Biophysics). Prospective students who are interested in a Ph.D. in Chemical Biology should apply directly to this program as nearly all faculty members conducting research in chemical biology at the University of Michigan are part of this program. Prospective students who are interested in a Ph.D. in chemistry with a specialization in chemical biology, for example, should apply directly to the Chemistry Department. Students broadly interested in the biomedical sciences should apply the Program in Biomedical Sciences (PIBS) at the University of Michigan Medical School and/or to Chemical Biology.
