Department of Molecular Medicine

Grounded in the Elmezzi Graduate School of Molecular Medicine and under the auspices of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, the mission of the Department of Molecular Medicine is to prepare medical students to discover and understand the causes of human diseases and rapidly and effectively translate this information into diagnostic and therapeutic solutions. There is a mounting national concern about the disappearance of physician-scientists at a time in history when they are needed most, as the potential for application of research findings to clinical problems is enormous.

Research interests of the faculty include: T & B cell function in leukemia and lymphoma; cytokine biology; inflammatory cascades in sepsis, toxic shock and cardiopulmonary disease; lupus and other autoimmune diseases; human papillomaviruses and tumorigenesis; signal transduction and tumor biology; tumor metastasis; molecular biology of breast and prostate cancer; thyroid hormones and cardiac function; genetics and molecular regulation of autoimmune diseases; movement disorders; psychopharmacology; schizophrenia; Alzheimer’s disease; and neuropsychiatric disorders.
