The graduate Biology program at The Catholic University of America is a small, focused, and collegial program that engages in state-of-the-art research in cell, microbial, and molecular biology.

The students will find the faculty highly accessible with a strong commitment to mentor graduate students. The program is comprehensive and offers a variety of choices that fit the needs and goals of virtually every prospective student. Off-campus collaborations with such renowned organizations as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, and Johns Hopkins University provide excellent opportunities for the graduate students to broaden their research horizons.

Every year, the department hosts a graduate research symposium, which provides students with the opportunity to gain experience in presenting their research and network with some of those already leading the way in biology research.
