The Multicentric Graduate Program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (PMBqBM) aims to establish a productive association between competent researchers geographically dispersed in public institutions in the country, where the implementation of independent programs is not yet possible - called Associated Institutions - and program researchers consolidated graduate programs - called Nuclear Institutions. With this, the intention is to establish a network of public institutions to stimulate the creation of new research groups, the formation of masters and doctors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and in the long term, the creation of new graduate programs in Biochemistry. and Molecular Biology in Associated Institutions.

The general objectives of PMBqBM are: (i) to provide knowledge in the areas of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, with rigorous training in basic experimental principles that enable the study of any biological problem, preparing its students for the performance of research and higher teaching activities in area, respecting the code of good scientific practices; (ii) encourage research and increase scientific productivity in the area of ​​Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; (iii) increase the number of professionals with modern, differentiated and excellent qualifications in the area, with the ability to compete in the best national and international centers.

Six years after its implementation and grade 4 at CAPES, the PMBqBM currently consists of 15 Associate Instituitions and 8 Nuclear Instituitions. This Program is present in all regions of the country and involves 149 Supervising Teachers, 142 Graduates and about 180 active Masters and Doctoral Students.
