The Cellular and Molecular Biology (CMB) Training Program at UCLA funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. First awarded in 1974, the program has supported 562 students, most of whom later advanced to full-time research and teaching positions.  A summary of the current positions held by former CMB trainees receiving a PhD within the last 15 years, and the average number of years taken to attain this degree, is shown here and under "People" in the menu above.

The CMB Training Program enhances opportunity for the study of 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 pursuing a PhD through Graduate Programs in Bioscience, which includes the four Home Areas affiliated with the Molecular Biology Interdepartmental PhD (MBIDP) program (Biochemistry, Biophysics, & Structural Biology; Cell & Developmental Biology; Gene Regulation; Immunity, Microbes, & Molecular Pathogenesis), and through the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, which includes the Biochemistry, Molecular and Structural Biology Graduate Program.
