Pathobiology Graduate Track
Pathobiology is an interdisciplinary field that strives to understand the mechanisms of disease at fundamental levels. The Pathobiology Track is an option for graduate students enrolled in the GPIBS program at UAMS. The Pathobiology Track offers students a flexible program of advanced study and research in experimental pathobiology, and the opportunity to be mentored by a wide range of basic science and clinical faculty who share a common interest in understanding the molecular basis of human disease. The Pathobiology Track offers flexibility in its program to permit each student to pursue the most effective course of study and research.
