The Cellular and Molecular Biology (CMB) graduate program was founded in 1971 to meet the growing need to train scientists in the latest research techniques in a multidisciplinary setting. Today, Markus Thali, CMB Director and Assistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, coordinates over 60 faculty in departments from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Nursing and Health and the College of Medicine. Graduate education at UVM is characterized by a close and collegial environment that stresses active mentorship and scientific excellence.

The central theme of the CMB program is to provide a rich experience at the forefront of modern biology focusing on collaborative research between students and investigators across the UVM campus. Currently the CMB program has over 40 students, most of whom are enrolled in the Ph.D. program.

CMB is unique in its multi- and interdisciplinary nature that is not constricted by the boundaries of a typical size department-based program. The curriculum is designed to provide flexibility and specialization in course work. The numbers of courses are kept to a minimum yet still provide access to an array of courses that a multidisciplinary program provides to tailor the curriculum to the student according to his or her interests.
