Molecular & Cellular


Pathology's Division of Molecular and Cellular Pathology has 16 full-time faculty members with a diverse range of interests encompassing bone metabolism, free radical biology, cardiovascular biology, cancer metastasis and gene therapy.  The research seeks to determine the molecular events that lead to change in cell function during the pathophysiology of disease.  The Division's graduate program is one of the largest Pathology Ph.D programs in the country with over 60 students and plays a key role in the UAB Program in Integrative Biomedical Sciences and the development of the new graduate program.  The objective of training is to integrate principles of biochemistry and molecular biology with those of physiology, pathophysiology, and therapy in the context of a cutting-edge research environment.
