Our Mission
The mission of Division of Molecular Medicine is to combine insights into human disease states with basic scientific research to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying these disorders. The ultimate goals of the faculty are to improve early diagnosis, treatment and cure of human disease. Ongoing research programs by Division faculty are broad ranging and include a multitude of studies. This scientific milieu provides a diverse and fertile environment for the training of undergraduate, graduate and medical students as well as post-doctoral fellows. To address these important questions, researchers employ a plethora of experimental approaches including epidemiology, proteomics, genomics, bioinformatics, human disease models, and cellular studies. In FY 2010, the Division of Molecular Medicine received more than $4.9 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health.
