About the Molecular Medicine Program
The Molecular Medicine program combines the resources of basic science and clinical medicine for an interdisciplinary approach to understanding disease processes. Based in an interdisciplinary research institute rather than an academic department, the program includes approximately 40 faculty members drawn from clinical and basic science departments. Students are encouraged to design their own program of study according to their interests and in consultation with their faculty mentor and advisory committee. Focused on discovering the molecular basis of human disease, research opportunities include neurobiology, immunology, molecular chaperones, radiobiology and cancer biology, regenerative medicine and reproductive medicine.

Graduate Research Assistantships
Students accepted into the Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. Program are eligible to receive a Graduate Research Assistantship package, which provides a competitive annual stipend (currently set at $25,500 for the 2018/19 academic year), and a reduced tuition rate of $25 per semester. Graduate Research Assistants are also offered two health insurance plans and a portion or up to all (100%) of the single-person premium costs will be covered by Augusta University depending on the plan that is selected. Students are responsible for paying standard student fees (approximately $1,035 per semester).
