The Cellular, Molecular and Biochemical Sciences Program (CMBP) is a unique graduate training opportunity at Ohio State University. This program includes faculty and trainees from four related molecular life sciences graduate programs: Microbiology, Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology, Molecular Genetics, and the Ohio State Biochemistry Program. The goal of the CMBP is to create new opportunities for student training. Monthly research meetings, annual symposia, career workshops, ethics training, CMBP-specific courses, optional internship programs, and career monitoring are other important components of the program. A scientific writing course specifically developed for this program is also offered to all trainees. CMBP is designed to attract top students to OSU, and the breadth and depth of the training provided will position CMBP graduates to make significant contributions to biomedical research in academia, government, and industry.
