In 1971, University faculty joined together to create an advanced degree in Cell Biology. For over twenty years, students earned masters and doctoral degrees in Cell and Molecular Biology. At last week’s Board of Trustees’ meeting, it was approved to change the name to broaden the ever changing landscape of research. The new name of CMB is, Cellular, Molecular and Biomedical Sciences.
I earned my Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) in Biotechnology from Visveswaraiah Technological University, India. After graduating in 2009, I worked for a couple of years on the pathogenesis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis at the Indian Institute of Science followed by a short stint at GangaGen Biotechnologies Private Limited on phage therapy.
