Molecular and Cellular Medicine

Vision for Training

This highly-integrative experience aims to fuse medical knowledge with graduate training in basic, biomedical research, producing outstanding scientists and physician-scientists with a deepened awareness for the core concepts of molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, and genetics while revealing the intimate connections that exist between basic molecular mechanisms and human pathogenesis. We expect this weaving of basic biomedical knowledge and clinically-relevant research to human health and disease will seamlessly lead to new understandings of disease mechanisms, while offering innovative opportunities for the creation of ‘next generation’ diagnostic tools, molecular medicines and possibly patient-specific, cellular therapies.


All members of the CMDB program participate in the Molecular and Cellular Medicine Concentration.
