The Biomedical Sciences Cluster at the University of Chicago consists of five programs: Cancer Biology, Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Metabolism and Nutrition, and the Department of Pathology (Molecular Pathogenesis and Molecular Medicine). Each program is a distinct, degree-granting unit in the Biological Sciences Division. The Cluster system enables these programs to integrate faculty, coursework, research programs, training programs, and seminars/symposia for a truly multidisciplinary training experience. The result is an integrated and flexible course of study, with options to work with over 170 full-time faculty. For both pre- and postdoctoral trainees and faculty, the interdisciplinary nature of the Cluster provides extensive opportunities for interaction and collaboration.
