Graduate students in the Biomedical Sciences at Emory enroll in one of eight interdisciplinary programs in the Graduate Division of Biological & Biomedical Sciences. The research faculty in the respective programs share scientific interests and are drawn from departments in the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and College of Arts & Sciences, as well as neighboring affiliated institutions such as the Centers for Disease Control and Yerkes Primate Center. Doctor of Philosophy degrees are granted by the Graduate School through the College of Arts & Sciences. Faculty can belong to more than one graduate program including those in Chemistry or Biophysics.

At any one time, students from virtually all of the programs may be working with faculty in the Biochemistry Department.
