Overview

The Cellular and Molecular Medicine program from University of Arizona  is an interdepartmental, multidisciplinary training program that fosters the development of scientists and educators who are prepared for lifelong participation in research and other intellectual pursuits. 

With an emphasis on bridging basic and translational science, Molecular Medicine trainees receive advanced training in the theory and practice of biomedical science. There are opportunities to investigate human health and disease ranging from biophysical studies at the atomic level, to modeling critical cellular process in tractable systems, to clinical research. 

The exposure and skills that our trainees acquire prepare them for careers in biomedical research (including academia and the biotechnology industry), science education, journalism, and public policy.

Cellular & Molecular Medicine 

The Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine is one of the five basic science departments of the University of Arizona College of Medicine located on the Northeast side of the University of Arizona Campus in Tucson, AZ.
