Message from the Chair

The mission of the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (CMM) is to provide pre- and post-doctoral, medical and graduate education in an interdisplinary environment through research activities, to advance knowledge of biological structure as related to function and disease from the molecular level to the whole organism.


Congratulations to Dr. Keith Maggert
