Progress through research and mentoring.
Our faculty utilize a variety of model systems, such as yeast, C. elegans, mammalian cells and mice to study fundamental mechanisms of molecular and cellular biology. Our interests deal with questions addressing genetic pathways that regulate cell proliferation, cell fate, differentiation and cancer formation.
We pride ourselves in our teaching commitment and are involved in extensive teaching to graduate students as well as medical students.
Faculty mentors also host students every summer through Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences summer undergraduate research experience (SURE) and summer medical research fellowship programs (SMRF).
Our new home with Rowan University has presented many new opportunities for combined undergraduate/graduate accelerated programs leading to combined B.A. and Masters degrees.
