The CAMB Graduate Group offers programs in six related areas of study: Cell Biology, Physiology, and Metabolism, Cancer Biology, Developmental, Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, Gene Therapy and Vaccines, Genetics and Gene Regulation, and Microbiology Virology and Parasitology, each composed of faculty with interests focused on similar areas of research. Programs operate fairly autonomously, providing their students with advising, programs meetings, trainee seminars, among other offerings. Although faculty are members of only one program, many have interests that extend across several of the programs. Students can do lab rotations with any member of CAMB, regardless of program affiliations. Students are assigned a program for administrative purposes during the admissions process based either on their declaration of interest in the program or our assessment of their interests based on the personal statement. They can change programs at any time prior to the beginning of the second year. Students are required to meet their program's course requirements as well as the overall Graduate Group course requirements within the first two years of study.
For information on studies as part of the whole Cell and Molecular Biology graduate group, see the section on "Academics." Other information important to students in the graduate group is available in the “Handbook” section of these pages.
