About the Department
The mission of the Department of Biomedical Sciences is to be “a community of scholars who educate future physicians and scientists and who advance knowledge through discovery.” Increasingly, faculty are working together to deliver an innovative, student-centered medical education curriculum taking maximum advantage of technology.
The Department of Biomedical Sciences excels in advancing knowledge in the molecular basis of human disease. Our research activities also provide opportunities for mentoring undergraduate, graduate and medical students. The Department of Biomedical Sciences is the basic science research and teaching arm of the College of Medicine.
The College of Medicine complex has more than 150,000 sq. ft. of new, state-of-the-art laboratory space, an extensive inventory of common use equipment and state-of-the art core labs in proteomics, genomics, confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, and cell culture. The Department of Biomedical Sciences has graduate programs in three areas: Biomedical Sciences, Neuroscience, and Molecular Biophysics.
