Basic Medical Sciences (BMS)
The Department of Basic Medical Sciences (BMS) offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) degrees. The Department emphasizes integrative studies that are applicable to animal and human health. Discovery activities range from studies of molecular and cellular processes to studies of the whole animal, in areas of cell and tissue growth, differentiation, regeneration, and numerous aspects of cancer biology. BMS faculty currently have active research programs in the areas of cancer biology; musculoskeletal biomechanics and skeletal adaptation; neural development, mechanisms of injury and regeneration; tissue dynamic spectroscopy; cellular and molecular screening; and high throughput analysis of cell function. Our directory of faculty research interests describes in more detail the exciting research that is conducted in BMS.
