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 graduated from Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China, with a Bachelor of Medicine degree. I joined CMB program in the fall of 2011 and joined Dr. Mercedes Rincon's lab this fall. I am now working on exploring the role of Interleukin-6 in immune response. Rui Yang
