Our discipline is designed for graduate students with a broad interest in investigating how prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells function as a living unit, respond to external cues, communicate with other cells, and contribute to the homeostatic and pathological processes in complex systems. The program offers maximum flexibility and can be individually tailored to a specific student's interests including aging, cancer, genetics, immunology, neuroscience, metabolism and physiology. We stress the development of a student's ability to think critically and to pursue hypothesis-driven research. We also encourage students to combine our advanced curriculum in Cell Biology, Genetics and Molecular Medicine with any of the advanced core courses in the other IBMS disciplines.
Congratulations to Frank Weaker! Dr. Weaker has received the Regents Outstanding Teaching Award from the UT System.
