Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences
Welcome to the Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences at North Carolina State University. This website will provide you with information about our department, its faculty and their research programs, and graduate programs affiliated with departmental faculty. This website is directed especially to prospective students who are considering applying to graduate school at NC State. You will find useful information that will facilitate your application to graduate school at NC State, and will assist you in learning about the research opportunities available to you in the Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences.
The Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences consists of 36 faculty who have a diversity of research and teaching interests. Included among our faculty are 11 clinical faculty, affording students the opportunity to participate in research projects with a direct clinical correlation to veterinary and/or human medicine. Our research faculty are housed in a new biomedical Research Building with 104,000 gross sq. ft., which opened in the summer of 2004. Thus, new, state-of-the-art research facilities are available to the research faculty in the department. Included in the new Research Building is a transgenic mouse facility, permitting the opportunity for graduate students to participate in research projects related to mouse and animal genomics.
A number of graduate programs are available to students interested in working with faculty in the Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences. The Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program in CVM consists of several different "tracks", allowing students to focus their research in the areas of cell biology, infectious diseases, pharmacology, pathology, and population medicine. Other graduate programs with which departmental faculty are affiliated include programs in immunology, physiology, and functional genomics.
