of the Cell and Molecular Biology
of Colorado State University
adopted: October 4, 2005
The Mission of the Cell and Molecular Biology Program is to foster interactions between faculty in multiple colleges and departments at Colorado State University who share a teaching and research interest in the areas of Cell and Molecular Biology and to promote the development of expertise in this sub-discipline of the biological and biomedical sciences. This is accomplished through the sustained offering of interdisciplinary graduate courses, the administration of a weekly Seminar Program in Cell and Molecular Biology, the development of research forums, and the organization of a Research Poster Competition for graduate students and post-doctoral research associates to showcase the breadth of research and graduate training available at Colorado State. The mission of the Program also includes the recruitment and mentoring of graduate students and the awarding of Master of Science Degrees and Doctor of Philosophy Degrees in Cell and Molecular Biology. Given the unique composition and mission of the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program, it is well positioned to assume a leadership role in interdisciplinary graduate education and the development of effective graduate recruiting programs in the biological and biomedical sciences.
