Welcome to the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology. Our mission is to achieve excellence in research, education, and service programs. The department’s diverse research programs include protein-protein interactions, drug delivery, histone structure and function, Cajal bodies and RNA processing, p53, cytochrome oxidase and mitochondrial function, mechanisms responsible for cancer initiation and metastases and novel peptide delivery systems, the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, and cellular mechanisms responsible for elevated blood pressure. Our research is supported by NIH, NSF, and other national foundations. Several of our primary and secondary faculty are members of the UMMC Cancer Center and Research Institute and the Women's Health Research Center. The department’s Ph.D. program in cell and molecular biology strives for each student to excel in coursework and research and to develop critical thinking and communication skills. With a strong knowledge base and skill set, graduating students will be equipped to pursue a variety of different career options. In addition, our faculty instruct medical, dental, and graduate students, and have won numerous teaching awards. -

The Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology (MCMP) is one of the top-rated programs in the country and is unique because it combines both medicinal chemistry and molecular pharmacology. Students in our Ph.D. program will be trained in an environment that combines chemical and biological approaches, which is essential for translating basic discoveries into novel therapeutics. The scientific approaches are taken by students and over 25 faculty in MCMP include medicinal chemistry and chemical biology, cell and molecular biology, molecular pharmacology, biophysical and computational chemistry, systems biology, functional and pharmacogenomics. Biomedical research topics covered in MCMP can be broadly grouped in three general areas: cancer biology, neuroscience, and infectious diseases. Our Ph.D. program is fully committed to excellence and innovation in the education of Ph.D. students. We are an inclusive and supportive environment, filled with energetic and creative students, fellows, faculty, and staff. Explore our faculty pages and contact us if you are interested in graduate studies and our Ph.D. program. -
