Applied to a PhD but did research in a different field

Recommended Posts

Hi ya'll

I applied to several PhD programs in Cell and Molecular Biology to focus in control of gene expression. As an undergrad I researched in gene regulation, but my lab tech and summer experiences are in neurobiology.

Would that affect me if I applied to Molecular Biology programs but most of my experience is from a different field (Neuro)?

Thank you

@Manilo I think it is fine. I am in engineering and I am kind of doing what you are doing. Most of the programs I am applying to are in Biomedical Engineering, but my research experiences and undergraduate degree were in materials science and engineering. As long as you express your interest in cell and molecular biology and show that they are capable of doing research in your applications, I think you will still be a good candidate. Good luck!
