Graduate Study. The Graduate Group in Integrative Pathobiology (GGIP) is the core UC Davis graduate program for students interested in disease processes and biomedical research. The diverse faculty members in the group come from the School of Veterinary Medicine, the School of Medicine, the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and the College of Biological Sciences. This diversity of faculty offers students a wide range of opportunities and expertise from the UC Davis biomedical research community.
GGIP is designed for students interested in studying mechanisms responsible for the development of disease at the organismal, cellular or subcellular level. Students interested in the interface between cell biology, biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology, physiology, immunology, and genetics are encouraged to apply.
Preparation. Students applying to this program have varied backgrounds. Some hold professional degrees (i.e., DVM, MD or DDS) while others apply after completion of an undergraduate degree. Students without a professional degree are admitted if they have exceptionally strong interests and backgrounds in basic biomedical sciences.Graduate Advisor.
