The research done in the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Studies is diverse, ranging from the structure and function of proteins, to physiological processes such as reproduction and immune surveillance, to pathologies such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative disease. In doing so, we provide our trainees with comprehensive education and research experiences---spanning from fundamental biochemical principles to translational patient-oriented research. Our multidisciplinary and collaborative research environment is conducive to unbridled discovery and supports many research leaders.
