Cell and Molecular Biology

Coordinator: Dr. Diana Chu — (415) 405-3487; Hensill 754

This program is designed for students preparing for future graduate work as well as those wishing to increase their competency in the fields of cell and molecular biology. It emphasizes the study of cells, cell organelles, macromolecules, and the regulation of their production and interaction. As such, it represents an expanding frontier of research that integrates biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, developmental biology, and cell ultrastructure.

The specific course requirements are determined by the student's committee and are based on considerations such as goals, interests, and undergraduate preparation. A strong background in chemistry is highly recommended.
