After completing undergraduate and graduate degrees at the bachelor’s and master’s level, many students opt to pursue further education with a doctoral degree, or PhD. Doctoral degrees provide an advanced level of knowledge encompassing high-level information available in the chosen field.

Many ask, “What is a PhD in Cell Biology?” Attaining this degree involves gaining in-depth understanding of the structure and function of biological cells in organisms ranging from single-celled microbes to complex beings such as humans. Students undertaking this program generally enter into a combination of research-based and study-based academic advancement, focused honing skills in scientific study and analysis while encouraging real-world practical applications of cellular biology principles.

Graduates in cell biology can enjoy the benefits of a number of highly transferable skills, including a talent for analysis and dissection of problems useful in all aspects of life. They may also attain significant expertise in specialized topics such as cell splicing and mouse colony management.

Determining program cost requires an understanding of a particular university’s cost structure as well as associated fees. Admissions at individual universities will be able to provide more specific details.

Completing cell biology doctoral programs offers a wide range of career options. Many industries have a need for cell biologists, although some PhD graduates choose to remain in pure research-focused studies working on environmental or other factors. Others branch out, applying their skills in unique and fascinating ways. For instance, cell biologists can work with oil and gas companies to determine how microcellular organisms influence the viability of drilling sites. They may also work as agricultural scientists, understanding how cellular disease models impact livestock and even crops.

With the advancement of online study, even doctoral programs can be completed in virtual classrooms, but students also have the option of international or local in-class studies. To discover more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
