Research at the Intersection of Pharmaceuticals and the Human Body
In this PhD program at both our Boston and Worcester campuses, you will build on your master’s degree in physiology, biochemistry, biology, or a related field to advance your career as a pharmacologist. Work alongside academic and industry experts to learn how to fully research the pharmacological actions of novel agents—in test tubes, cells, tissues, or animals. Conduct research that leads to improved drug design. And develop an innovative and creative approach to problem solving through theoretical and experiential situations. The program begins in the fall.
