The University of Tennessee Department of Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology (BCMB) is home to over 400 undergraduate majors. Housed in the Ken and Blaire Mossman (1311 Cumberland Ave.) and Hesler Biology (1406 Circle Dr.) Buildings, our research teams of faculty, undergrads, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows are working on topics ranging from molecular structure to organismal levels.

RESEARCH EXPERIENCES FOR DEAF STUDENTS IN SYSTEMS BIOLOGY AND MOLECULAR SIGNALING

“How Cells and Organisms make Decisions”

Applications are now being solicited for a ten week, NSF-funded summer REU program sponsored by the BCMB Department. The program will provide students with the opportunity to engage in multi-disciplinary research projects employing molecular, genetic, genomic, and systems level approaches to investigate the strategies through which model organisms across the biological kingdom sense and adapt to a changing environment. The program is tailored to Deaf students within the biological, chemical, and physical sciences with an interest in careers in STEM. In addition, Hearing students with an interest in scientific research as well as training in American Sign Language are encouraged to apply to the program. Further information and an online application are available .
