The Master's of Science program in Cellular Biology & Anatomy provides our students with training in the Clinical Anatomical Sciences that gives them the tools to enable them to continue to pursue a terminal degree after graduation if they desire to ultimately join a faculty within an Academic Medical Center.

Our program also has a translational component in basic science research skills, which allows the student to develop a research career in a setting of their choosing, whether at undergraduate / community college or in an Industrial / Pharmaceutical Research setting.

Students in the Masters program gain research experience through matriculating in the state-of-the-art research programs of our faculty. Our faculty explore basic and translational research studies in areas such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and diabetic complications.
