The Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) Graduate Program is an interdisciplinary program comprised of over 130 faculty from three colleges. The program offers training in seven different research tracks:

  • Bioinformatics & Computational Biology
  • Cell & Developmental Biology
  • Chemical Biology & Drug Discovery
  • Molecular Genetics
  • Neurobiology
  • Biomolecular Structure and Function
  • Plant Molecular Biology

Each of the tracks provides specialized courses and training for the graduate students beyond the basic core curriculum. All Cell and Molecular Biology graduate students are supported in their first semester by the Interdisciplinary Life Sciences (ILS) Graduate Program. The support from ILS has allowed the life sciences to dramatically expand the size and quality of the CMB graduate program over the past two decades.
