The Master of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology is designed to produce outstanding graduates, and is the study of the biochemical, biophysical, and genetic processes in cells. Depending on whether a student chooses an emphasis in Research-based Thesis, or Biotechnology Internship, the program is designed for students who are interested in research and may consider continuing their education to earn a Ph.D. or for those preparing for a career working in, or managing, an applied science laboratory.
The Cell and Molecular Biology M.S. program is part of Grand Rapids’ only Professional Science Master’s (PSM) degree program, and prepares students in the important and dynamic fields of Cell and Molecular Biology, Biotechnology and Biomedical research.
