The CMM program grew out of a need for training at the interface between medicine and the traditional basic science disciplines. Rapid progress in cellular and molecular biology has strongly impacted clinical medicine, offering insights on fundamental causes of many diseases. Now new discoveries in the laboratory can be applied rapidly to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. 

This has been made possible by emerging technology that allows scientists to identify genetic and molecular defects causing or predisposing to disease. The trainees in this program are working precisely at this interface between science and medicine where they will be able to contribute to the long term well being of society.
