The Cellular and Molecular Biology Program aims to train professionals to work in research and higher education.

Program advisors investigate various biological topics and models employing experimental approaches. They also raise biological issues related to the knowledge in Cellular and Molecular Biology. Biological and computational tools of the post-genomic era are employed to study cancer, aspects of the biology of unicellular and metazoan organisms, the interaction between pathogens and hosts, as well as crucial cellular processes ranging from intracellular trafficking and secretion to cytoskeleton and molecular motors. Other forms of research such as the generation and use of GMOs and equipment parks for in vitro and in vivo image processing, make up a rich multidisciplinary environment.

Our program provides our students with research processes and knowledge in Cellular Biology in physiological or pathological states, developmental biology, structural biology, microbiology, or cancer biology.

Our graduates are encouraged to submit works to international conferences and attend courses or internships abroad.

These approaches and actions collaborate to solid scientific training, qualifying students to work in their sub-areas and acknowledging them nationally and internationally.
