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 received my BS in Biology in 2006 from the University of Maine. After graduating, I spent the next two years living in Salzburg, Austria studying German and traveling (don't ask about kangaroos). After coming back to reality, I worked in a lab at MMCRI in Scarborough, Maine for a year, and discovered a passion for research. I joined the CMB program in 2009, and am currently working in Dr. Yvonne Janssen-Heininger's lab. James D. Nolin
