School of Medicine Researchers

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Faculty of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology are dedicated to understanding life at the biochemical, genetic and cellular level. Our major goals are to make discoveries that provide new knowledge regarding the mechanisms that drive cellular systems and to move these findings from the bench to the bedside. Our second and equally important goal is to educate the next generation of highly-trained and capable scientists and physician investigators.

Microbiology and Immunology


The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is dedicated to training researchers of the highest caliber. Taught by leading innovators in the field of pharmacology, our students receive a strong foundation in the basic sciences, but at the same time are encouraged to find unique ways of using that science to foster new discoveries.
