The UNC at Chapel Hill Cell Biology and Physiology (CBP) Curriculum is an integrative, multidisciplinary predoctoral training program that uses a systems approach to provide comprehensive, biomedical graduate education to our trainees. The CBP Curriculum mission is to develop a diverse pool of responsible and rigorous scientists who acquire the skills to investigate the integrative, regulatory and developmental physiology of higher organisms and their organ systems by elucidating and evaluating the molecular and cellular functional components of these systems. Our students will formulate sophisticated strategies for analysis of contemporary biomedical problems with a strong emphasis on career development, including oral and written presentation skills, and mentoring students in a way that enables them to explore diverse job opportunities available to them in the post-graduate biomedical workforce.

Career placement data for past CBP alumni can be accessed on the BBSP website!

Current UNC PhD students can contact the Student Services Manager (Janice Warfford) for class enrollment requests for CBPH (Cell Biology and Physiology) courses and other Cell Biology and Physiology student administrative requests; contact the Director of Graduate Studies (DGS, Jay Brenman) for programmatic questions about the Cell Biology and Physiology Curriculum.
