Participation in the program will provide enhanced educational credentials through a flexible curriculum, with most classes offered in the early evening to maximize accessibility. Classes can be attended at two Drexel University College of Medicine locations: Center City and Queen Lane Campuses in Philadelphia. State-of-the-art videoconferencing provides real-time interactive learning at both locations.


The Master of Science in Molecular Medicine program is designed to provide academic and practical biotechnological knowledge in translational research, particularly in the areas of molecular therapeutics and vaccine development.

In addition to broad geographic access, the curriculum provides flexibility in content and course load. Most students will complete the program in two years through completion of required courses and electives selected from two menus: research theory and laboratory research. The latter includes the option of either an intensive summer research internship in a biotechnology-based company or part-time research training in an academic research setting. Some students may opt to complete the program on a part-time basis, taking up to four years. In either sequence, no dissertation is required. Program directors and course faculty will work closely with each student to best achieve his or her specific goals.

Online versions of selected first-year courses are now available.
