About the Program

Molecular Medicine faculty and students are united by an interest in molecular mechanisms underlying disease. Program faculty and students are involved in cutting-edge science especially focused on immunological diseases and cancer. 

While some of our researchers focus on the genes, molecules, and cells that contribute to disease states, others are directly involved in “bench to bedside” work. Regardless of which end of the spectrum interests you as a biomedical researcher in training, there’s a lab for you in the Molecular Medicine Program! 



Yukai He, MD PhD  Program Director

"Welcome to the Molecular Medicine Program, where we focus on the fast-growing field of immunology and immunotherapy. Become a team member to study and manipulate the body’s immune system to fight cancers as well as other diseases. You will be trained to impact patient care through translational research and to become a leader in academia or in industry."
