The Lerner Research Institute at the Cleveland Clinic is home to the Molecular Medicine Ph.D. Program. The Cleveland Clinic is consistently rated among the top 4 U.S. Hospitals according to U.S. News & World Report and has been rated #1 in cardiac care for 18 consecutive years. Molecular Medicine Ph.D. students train in a state-of-the-art facility with over 700,000 square feet of research space and nearly 200 investigators.
The Molecular Medicine Ph.D. Program integrates medical knowledge into graduate training. The goal of this program is to train research scientists who are effective members of translational research teams working along side physicians. Our students are engaged in basic or applied research that is relevant to human health and can lead to new understanding of disease, clinical and diagnostic tools, medications, and therapies.
Molecular Medicine Ph.D. students have the opportunity to learn from faculty members at the Lerner Research Institute, the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine and Case Western Reserve University. Our students focus on medically relevant research and train with research leaders in their fields of study as well as world-class clinicians.
