Molecular Medicine and Translational Science Graduate Degree Programs
From its home within the Department of Internal Medicine Section on Molecular Medicine, the Molecular Medicine and Translational Science program trains PhD students in research to better understand human diseases at a molecular level and translate that knowledge to improved diagnostics, treatment, and disease prevention. The MMTS program includes scientists from all major basic science and clinical programs at Wake Forest University and was one of the first established molecular medicine programs nationwide. Beginning in 2011, MMTS joined four other complementary PhD programs in the Wake Forest University Graduate School’s Molecular and Cellular Biosciences track, where combined expertise will be utilized to enhance the depth of student learning and discovery.
