Cell, Developmental & Molecular Biology

The mission of the CDM program is to educate and train graduate students through coursework and laboratory research in the subjects of biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, cell biology, and developmental biology. Students may enter by applying directly to the Department of Biological Sciences, or by applying through the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology, with the Department of Biological Sciences as the host department.

Both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are offered by the CDM group. Students are encouraged to do laboratory rotations in their first year to sample the diverse research options available. Students must take core courses, as well as additional courses in their specific field of research. All graduate students attend seminars and give annual presentations.
