Department of Molecular Biosciences faculty, research scientists, postdocs and graduate students are affiliated with a number of cross-departmental and cross-college research centers and institutes. They are:

Center for Biomedical Research Support

The Center for Biomedical Research Support (CBRS) supports core facilities, services, and resources for biomedical researchers. For more information, see our page on core facilities.

Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

The Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CCBB) provides learning opportunities for students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty interested in the use of computational approaches to solving biological problems.

John Ring LaMontagne Center for Infectious Disease

The mission of the LaMontagne Center for Infectious Disease is to conduct basic and translational research into the molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis of bacterial, viral, parasitic, or fungal infections and strategies for their prophylaxis and therapy. These efforts also include characterizing and predicting the spread of infectious diseases through populations, and supporting programs to define the human and animal responses to challenge by infectious agents and how human genetics impact susceptibility to infection.

Waggoner Center for Alcohol and Addiction Research

Investigators at the Waggoner Center for Alcohol and Addiction Research provide wide-ranging academic approaches to alcohol and addiction research. These research directives include studies of neural plasticity, molecular actions of alcohols and anesthetics, gene expression, and addictive behaviors.
