BS in Biology: Cell and Molecular Biology Track

Cell Picture

Powerful new biochemical and physical techniques have produced a revolution in cell and molecular biology over the last 20 years.

These techniques have been combined with information and techniques from genetics to analyze living systems at progressively higher levels of resolution. These analyses have in turn produced an increasingly detailed understanding of the molecular structures and processes of cellular life and their roles in the function, reproduction, and development of living organisms. Not only has this powerful integrated approach emerged as central to virtually all pursuits in the biological and biomedical sciences, it offers promise for directed modifications of living systems in applications such as biotechnology, nerve regeneration, and tissue engineering.

Cell and molecular biology, along with biotechnology, genetic engineering, and biomedical science, are among the fastest growing and most exciting fields today. National labor statistics project substantial growth in the biotechnology job market in general over the next five to ten years, and biotechnology job growth is expected to be especially strong in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The Cell and Molecular Biology Track at IUP offers an opportunity for you to begin a career that involves the study of the molecular and genetic bases of cellular processes.
