During Applied Biosciences – Molecular and Cellular Biology degree offered by the University of Arizona students graduating in this track will be prepared for professional careers in government, academia, or in industry in such fields as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, bioinformatics, medical research, and agriculture.

The discipline of Molecular and Cellular Biology is the study of life processes. What types of activities are carried out by cells, and how do cells make these activities work? Our department aims for its students to develop a deep understanding of current ideas and problems in molecular and cellular biology and to build foundational skills in logic, reasoning, self-expression, and communication.

MCB researchers utilize model systems that allow them to query the most basic of questions about nature, whether they be at the molecular level, at the level of a cell or organism, or in the development of clinical application of new human disease therapies.

Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs

The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs.

GIDPs transcend departmental boundaries by facilitating cutting edge teaching and research at the nexus of traditional disciplines. The high value placed on interdisciplinary research and education is indicative of The University of Arizona’s enthusiasm and commitment to fostering innovation and creativity among its faculty and students.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
