BMS faculty are united in their quest for scholarship. While the research programs of the BMS faculty are varied, ranging from functional anatomy and basic cell molecular biology to cardiovascular physiology, behavioral disorders, developing model organ systems and research in medical education, they overlap in many experimental technologies and the fundamental principle of performing hypothesis driven investigations. The strength of our research programs is recognized by funding support from the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, National Science Foundation and other national and regional funding agencies.

Our research laboratories are the training grounds for UA College of Medicine – Phoenix medical students, as well as undergraduate students from the ASU Tempe, Downtown Phoenix and West campuses. BMS also provides an outstanding multi-disciplinary setting for post-graduate education and training. Faculty in BMS actively participate in the Clinical Translational Science Graduate Program at the University of Arizona along with the Molecular and Cellular Biology, Microbiology and Neuroscience Graduate Programs at Arizona State University. Prospective students are encouraged to learn more about these programs below and to contact BMS Faculty and inquire about training opportunities in their laboratories.
