Graduate students are selected on the basis of prior academic
achievement, as well as on degree of motivation and future promise for
careers in scientific research and teaching. The Molecular Biophysics
Educational Track confers only PhD degrees. Students entering the
program enroll in an academically rigorous degree plan, tailored to
their individual backgrounds and interests, with strong emphasis on
independent laboratory research.
The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) uses a common application form for admissions to its Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
(which contains the Graduate Program in Biophysical, Structural, and
Computational Biology), its School of Allied Health Sciences, and its
School of Nursing. All applications are processed through UTMB's Office
of the Registrar.
Please follow these directions when using the online application:
- The MBET program keyword in the following application is: PDBMSB.
- Go to The UTMB Online Application and select new applicant registration form under the first time application section, and complete the form. This establishes an account for you.
- Completely fill out the
application, including remitting the application fee, providing letters
of reference, etc. The system incrementally saves your online
application information, so you don't have to fill it all out at once.
- Suggested: Go to our Contact
page and let our program coordinator know that you will be applying to
our program. Let her know if you have any questions or comments.
For more information, please visit Enrollment Services.
International students are important to UTMB and the MBET.

Students admitted to our program are
guaranteed a generous graduate assistant-ship support throughout their
graduate career, as long as they make satisfactory progress toward their
degree. Graduate assistant-ships are only available to US citizens and
permanent residents (green card holders).
We look forward to hearing from you. Please contact us with any concerns about the program.
