Molecular, Cellular, and Biomedical Sciences

Explore the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Biomedical Sciences 

Our strength in biochemistry, genomics, microbiology, and the biomedical sciences at both the basic and applied levels creates the foundation for students at all levels to explore the wonders of the life sciences. With our new organization, we anticipate growth in our research competitiveness and emergence of new course offerings, particularly in the fields of genetics, bioinformatics and clinical medicine. We already have strong linkages with our new biological sciences department and expect new initiatives such as biosafety to emerge. With agriculture at the center of our college, we are committed to our outreach mission to the state of New Hampshire.
