Graduate Training in Redox Biology and Medicine

Graduate students (MS, PhD. or MD/PhD candidates) interested in training in Redox Biology and Medicine are encouraged to apply, either through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences or the Graduate School in the Biomedical Sciences.  Wake Forest is known for the highly collaborative interactions between the research faculty and trainees, and the low student-to-faculty ratio (2:1) which provides significant personal attention to each trainee. Ph.D. students are generally supported with stipends, tuition costs, and a laptop computer.

Specific to Redox Biology and Medicine (RBM) is the CRBM-affiliated graduate Training Program T32 GM127261 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. Students involved in RBM training can obtain a PhD in areas which include:
  • Biology
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
  • Biomedical Sciences (including Molecular Medicine and Translational Science, Cancer Biology, Integrative Physiology and Pharmacology, and Biomedical Engineering). 
The program includes a signature course in Fundamentals of Redox Biology and Medicine (MCB 715) held in the Spring each year and is complemented by CRBM-sponsored workshops and seminars held throughout the year. RBM training is designed to prepare students for careers in academic research, teaching, biotechnology, or the pharmaceutical industry in this specialized area of strength at our institution. 

Wake Forest encourages applications from underrepresented minorities and students with disabilities.
