The Program in Molecular Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School was established in a new research building in 1989. Faculty include both clinical investigators and basic scientists, many of whom focus their research on human disease processes. The laboratory groups and core facilities that compose Molecular Medicine represent many disciplines in the bio-medical sciences: biochemistry and molecular biology, cell biology, medicine, immunology, molecular genetics and microbiology, pediatrics, pharmacology, physiology, genomics, bioinformatics and proteomics. This diverse scientific environment makes the Program an exceptional training ground for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, who in turn contribute much to its vitality and excitement. This collection showcases publications and presentations written by faculty and researchers of the Program in Molecular Medicine.
