Welcome to the Integrative Cell Biology Graduate Program. We are committed to training graduate students to be competent and competitive in pursuing an academic research and/or teaching career. The faculty strength is in eukaryotic cell biology with a strong emphasis in contemporary research problems in neurobiology, immunology and neuroimmunology.

The main mission of the Integrative Cell Biology Graduate Program graduate program is to develop a comprehensive educational and research program that extends and transmits fundamental knowledge in cell biology, neurobiology, and anatomy. Such an experience is provided by a faculty committed to excellence in research, teaching and service to students in the Stritch School of Medicine and the Graduate School.

The program will foster an academic environment that will enable students to lead productive, creative, and ethical careers in the fields of cell biology, neurobiology, and anatomy. Graduates will be competent researchers in the biomedical sciences. They also will be recognized as individuals who are capable of teaching gross anatomy, developmental biology, cell biology, histology, and neuroscience to students in the health sciences.
