MCIBS - Molecular medicine emphasis area

students at poster

Overview:

Image shows the life cycle of malaria in the red blood cellThe Molecular Medicine emphasis area focuses on elucidating molecular/cellular pathways of human and animal disease and their translational application. In addition to the core MCIBS curriculum students in the Molecular Medicine Emphasis area can take additional courses from a broad range of electives that focus primarily on Cancer Biology, Diabetes and Metabolic Disease and Molecular Neurobiology and Neurological Disease.

Read about recent MM emphasis area graduate Archie Taylor.
