Cell & Molecular Biology Program

Welcome to the Cell and Molecular Biology Program at Michigan State University
The Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) program is an interdepartmental Ph.D. program comprised of approximately forty graduate students and ninety faculty members.  The research programs of CMB students and faculty are quite diverse, but all members share a common interest in the mechanisms that regulate cell structure and function.  The CMB training program allows students to focus on their particular area of research while being exposed to a wide variety of topics in cell and molecular biology.
