Earliest start date
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans offers PhD degrees. It is not necessary to receive the MS degree before entering the PhD program, and we encourage students to proceed directly from the BS to the PhD. Typically, the first year of the PhD program involves the student taking formal classes while rotating through a minimum of three laboratories. The purpose of the laboratory rotations is to give both the student and potential major professors a chance to evaluate one another. At the end of the first year, the student should choose a laboratory in which to complete his/her laboratory training.
