The Cell and Molecular Biology faculty at UVA provide a comprehensive graduate training program in modern cell and molecular biological sciences.
We believe that the best biological scientists are those who possess a broad knowledge of cell and molecular biology, as well as a thorough understanding of their own particular research area. Our program strives to provide the widest possible choice of mentors and research areas, while offering an individually-tailored academic program for each graduate student.
