Dartmouth has a number of Programs and Centers in related research areas.
Dartmouth Lung Biology Center website
Lung disease is the third most frequent cause of death in this country, claiming ~360,000 Americans annually. Tragically, an additional 25 million live with chronic lung diseases including asthma, emphysema, cancer and cystic fibrosis. Unfortunately, the number of individuals wih lung disease is increasing at an alarming rate.
The Dartmouth Lung Biology Center aims to gain a better understanding of the etiology of lung disease and to study new therapeutics for the treatment of lung disease. The Dartmouth Lung Biology Center is grounded in basic research and embraces a translational approach to promote bidirectional bench-to-bedside research.
Immunology Program website
Immunology Program graduate students receiving the Ph.D. degree from Dartmouth and postdoctoral fellows are prepared for postdoctoral or faculty positions in academia, including both primarily teaching or research-oriented colleges and universities; in research institutes; in biotech and other companies; or positions in business or law. The placement of both graduate students and postdoctoral fellows has been very successful and includes positions at the most prestigious institutes.
Graduate Program in Experimental and Molecular Medicine website
This graduate program seeks to train the next generation of scientists and physician-scientists to engage in research in genomic, proteomic, cellular, and organ-based systems for the purpose of translating this knowledge into disease treatment and prevention.
Research carried out by faculty and trainees in this program will use the most advanced experimental approaches to understand the pathophysiology of disease and to develop new diagnostics and therapeutics.
Students will have the opportunity to be mentored by faculty within both the basic and clinical sciences.
Molecular and Cellular Biology Graduate Program website
The Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) Graduate Program at Dartmouth encompasses the areas of biophysics and structural biology, biotechnology, cell biology, circadian biology, computational biology and genomics, developmental biology, evolutionary biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, molecular pathogenesis and host-microbe interactions, neurobiology, parasitology, plant molecular biology, proteomics, regulation of gene expression, and signal transduction and cellular metabolism. The MCB program seeks to train highly qualified students for productive careers in research and teaching through the completion of a Ph.D. degree.
