The Institute of Molecular Biology -- the IMB -- is a group of biologists, chemists, and physicists at the University of Oregon who have pooled their expertise to tackle fundamental questions in molecular biology. What are the underlying principles that define life? How do organisms develop and respond to their environments in an organized fashion? How does life evolve? How can we translate our molecular understanding into novel therapies?

To address these questions, the IMB boasts a highly collaborative faculty with expertise in genomics, cell biology, biochemistry/biophysics, systems biology, microbiology, and evolutionary biology. Our researchers use a wide variety of biological systems, from germ-free zebrafish to in vitro-reconstituted molecular machines to computational models. As a result, students enrolled in our PhD program come away with the broad conceptual and technical skills necessary to succeed in modern biological research. Further, our state-of-the-art facilities and excellent support staff allow members of the IMB community to focus their efforts on science.
