Research Areas

The Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics (CBMG) offers a highly interactive research environment and outstanding research facilities, including the new Bioscience Research Building. Laboratories in CBMG and affiliated departments and institutes at the University of Maryland are active in the following areas of research:

 

Genetics and Genomics

Microbiology, Microbial Pathogenesis, and Immunology

Cell and Developmental Biology

Virology

Plant Biology

 

Each area offers unique opportunities to undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral investigators to perform original research and pursue rigorous training in Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics. For more information about graduate program please go to BISI graduate program.

The University of Maryland recently reorganized its biology graduate programs. The Molecular and Cell Biology (MOCB) and Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics (CBMG) programs are no longer accepting applicants as independent programs. Please explore those interests in concentration areas within the new Biological Sciences (BISI) graduate program.
