logo_pbmm_e_revisedWelcome to the Pathobiology & Molecular Medicine (PBMM) Graduate Theme at UAB and the exciting field of translational research. PBMM is designed to give students the very best multidisciplinary training within the emerging and exciting field of molecular medicine.  The main objective of the theme is to expose students to a diverse faculty with research interests that range from molecules - to whole organisms - to disease processes - to new therapies.  Our premise is that students, when trained in basic principles of molecular and cellular biology, in addition to organ-based physiology, pharmacology, toxicologypathology, and environmental health sciences will be prepared to study biological processes at any level of organization.  The important biomedical issues of today are sufficiently complex that the successful investigator must be able to tackle these issues using integrated, multi-faceted approaches. 

PBMM has begun accepting applications for Fall 2015.  Click here for more information about applying, or click the Apply Now link on the lefthand menu.  Note the December 1st priority deadline and the January 15th final deadline!
