Chairman's Welcome

A Message From the Chairman

The Department of Cell Biology and Biochemistry offers Ph.D. and Master of Science degrees in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics or Cell and Molecular Biology and Master of Science in Pre-Medical Sciences. We have 14 faculty mentors whose research programs in Cancer, Cell Cycle, Cell and Molecular Biology, Diabetes, Neurobiology and Reproductive Biology are recognized internationally. As a graduate student in one of our laboratories, you will be performing original and exciting cutting-edge research in a top-notch laboratory using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. After graduation, our Ph.D. students are highly sought after. They typically accept postdoctoral positions in well known laboratories around the United States and internationally before accepting faculty positions to become independent investigators and establish their own laboratories.

We take particular pride in the individual attention our faculty mentors provide for every student as they progress through each phase of their training. Our faculty mentors are there to support in class room work, grant writing, research projects, and communicating the results of their work in seminars and published research papers.
