Dr. Helene McMurray, Ph.D.
The Cell Biology of Disease Graduate Program trains students in understanding and developing treatments for human disease.
The program is multidisciplinary in nature, drawing on faculty expertise in all aspects of disease biology including:
- Defining molecular mechanisms underlying human disease
- Developing model systems, from genetic models to human tissue studies
- Big data and ‘omic’ sciences (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, lipidomics, metabolomics, and microbiomics)
- Designing therapeutic interventions using regenerative biology, forward pharmacology, and rational drug design
Students work with any faculty throughout the University of Rochester Medical Center whose research focuses on cell biological mechanisms of pathogenesis.
Our graduates go on to diverse and rewarding careers in academic, medical, industrial, non-profit and governmental settings.
