Molecular Biology

Courses Taught by our Faculty

Faculty in the Department of Molecular Biology are highly involved in the educational mission of the School of Medicine and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. In the medical school, faculty course direct three courses: Biochemistry, Microbiology & Immunology, and Histology. These courses are part of the core medical undergraduate curriculum in the first year of physician training at the Stratford campus. In addition, there is strong faculty representation in the pre-matriculation program and various committees for curriculum, assessment, research, faculty affairs and the RowanSOM hearing body. Department faculty also contribute to numerous courses in the graduate school and mentor both Ph.D. and Masters students in laboratory work across a variety of research models including C. elegans, S. Cerevisiae, mouse and human cell culture models.
