Our overarching educational goal is to instill a deep understanding of the structural and mechanistic details of important biological systems that form the basis of cellular life. Our MLS curriculum will provide understanding of important cellular processes in a level of depth not currently offered by other degrees on this campus.
Modern advances in the life sciences also heavily rely on high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies coupled with bioinformatic analysis. There is an ongoing revolution of newly developed high-resolution structural biology techniques that are revealing the structure and function of many proteins and cellular organelles. This curriculum will introduce you to these methodologies and application of these techniques.
