Welcome to the Cellular, Molecular and Biomedical Sciences graduate program. Our program has been in existence for over 40 years and focuses on understanding cellular, genetic and biochemical mechanisms in prokaryotes and eukaryotes that control growth, development, responses of cells and organisms to their environment, and changes in cell signaling and gene expression that contribute to normal cellular function and/or disease. The Program has faculty from all across the UVM campus in various disciplines from biology, chemistry, plant biology, physiology, pharmacology, and the department of medicine.
