The Cellular and Molecular Biology (C&MB) Training Program at UCLA funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. First awarded in 1974, the program has supported 531 students and 8 without funding, most of whom are already in full-time research and teaching positions.

The C&MB Training Program enhances opportunity for the development of the cellular, biochemical and molecular sciences at UCLA, providing research support and integrating coursework, seminar programs, and the Molecular Biology Institute's annual retreat. Our training faculty have access to graduate students either through primary appointments in the Departments of Biological Chemistry; Chemistry and Biochemistry; Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics; Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology; or through the four Graduate Programs in Bioscience Home Areas affiliated with the Molecular Biology Interdepartmental Ph.D. (MBIDP) program: Biochemistry, Biophysics, & Structural Biology; Cell & Developmental Biology; Gene Regulation; and Immunity, Microbes, & Molecular Pathogenesis.
