The Program in Molecular Biology was established in 1987 by a group of faculty with a common interest in molecular biology. In 2012, the Molecular Biology Program merged with the Biochemistry graduate program to become the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Program.  The program has become one of the leading training programs at Loyola University Medical Center, and currently has over 25 faculty members and approximately 15 full-time graduate students.

 An interdisciplinary program with a variety of research interests, the Program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offers graduate students opportunities to pursue research in: molecular virology, eukaryotic gene transcription and expression, human cancer, molecular immunology, prokaryotic genetics, molecular cardiology, and eukaryotic genetics. Graduate studies lead to either a M.S. or Ph.D degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
