The Cellular and Molecular Medicine program from University of Arizona is an interdepartmental, multidisciplinary training program that fosters the development of scientists and educators who are prepared for lifelong participation in research and other intellectual pursuits.

With an emphasis on bridging basic and translational science, Molecular Medicine trainees receive advanced training in the theory and practice of biomedical science. There are opportunities to investigate human health and disease ranging from biophysical studies at the atomic level, to modeling critical cellular process in tractable systems, to clinical research.

The exposure and skills that our trainees acquire prepare them for careers in biomedical research (including academia and the biotechnology industry), science education, journalism, and public policy.

Cellular & Molecular Medicine

The Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine is one of the five basic science departments of the University of Arizona College of Medicine located on the Northeast side of the University of Arizona Campus in Tucson, AZ.

The mission of the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (CMM) is to provide pre- and post-doctoral, medical and graduate education in an interdisplinary environment through research activities to advance knowledge of biological structure as related to function and disease from the molecular level to the whole organism.

Courses included:

  • Principles of Cell Biology
  • Science, Society, & Ethics
  • Nucleic Acids, Metabolism, and Signaling

“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?”​
