Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program:
CMB is a graduate recruitment, admissions and degree conferring program. The Colorado State University Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program consists of faculty members from five colleges and 13 departments whose research programs focus on the molecular and cellular aspects of cancer biology, infectious disease, metabolism (includes biofuels), neuroscience, plant biology, molecular physiology, gene expression, reproductive biology, developmental biology and structural biology. Due to the broad range of well-funded research laboratories to work in, CMB attracts a large number of highly qualified applications each year. The current CMB student body consists of 14 MS and 60 PhD students conducting their research in laboratories of the CMB Faculty Members.
