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.
Needing a change from the warm and sunny San Diego, I chose Burlington to be my home for the next chapter for my life. After graduating from California State University San Marcos, I came to work for Affymetrix in San Diego. These learning experiences greatly influenced my decision to pursue a career in biomedical research and academia. I decided to join CMB at UVM for many reasons, one of which being the excellent level of interaction among the scholar community. Secondly, I am excited to explore everything the town has to offer - I'm definitely excited to experience the change of seasons. And lastly, a little trusting my intuition - Burlington just feels right. Huy Tu
