PEMM 137 Qualifying Examination

Effective writing of grant applications is required for a successful career in research. The grant application component of the graduate program is both a training exercise to help develop grant writing skills and a qualifying exam. Learning how to compose a defendable hypothesis is an essential component of the training of a graduate student. Students should be able to develop a novel line of research, propose a hypothesis, and develop a series of experiments to test this hypothesis. A student must be able to defend the proposal at an oral examination. At the same time, the student should also demonstrate knowledge of the larger field of Experimental and Molecular Medicine reflected in the general area of the proposal and material covered in completed coursework.
