Leading the University of Miami into the next frontier of education, the Miller School of Medicine’s Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has established a unique degree program that will enable industry and government scientists to remain on the job—and in their labs—while earning a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Industrial Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Established by Sylvia Daunert, the Lucille P. Markey Chair of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Sapna Deo, director of the Graduate Program, and Zafar Nawaz, senior associate dean for graduate and postdoctoral studies, the new degree is the first in the nation designed for full-time pharmaceutical, biotech, or other industry or government laboratory scientists who are working in non-academic fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, or medicine. Beginning this fall, candidates anywhere in the U.S. will have the opportunity to earn a Ph.D. from the Miller School through remote learning, rigorous research, and dual university/company mentorship.
