About

Graduates of the Environmental Molecular Biology and Biotechnology program from University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science will most often be found employed in academic and research based institutions (both government and private), as well as employed by consulting firms and other private sectors.  

Overview

Key Features

Molecular approaches pervade every biological discipline, and each MEES campus boasts distinguished, energetic faculty members that emphasize molecular mechanisms of ecological interactions and dynamics. Expertise includes molecular microbial ecology and physiology; bioremediation; molecular endocrinology of fish growth, development and reproduction; environmental stressors contributing to fish physiological dysfunction and oncogenesis; mechanisms and stressors of nitrogen fixation; molecular models of marine surface colonization; molecular cues of organism-organism interaction; and invertebrate immunity. 

Faculty in this area frequently study macromolecular-environmental interactions using recombinant DNA and hybridoma approaches. The  Environmental Molecular Biology and Biotechnology program from University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science encourages interaction between campuses and is synergistic with other AOSs.

Several campuses in the University System of Maryland have facilities specializing in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. The Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) houses newly built state-of-the-art facilities in the Columbus Center in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. 

The University of Maryland's campuses at Baltimore and Baltimore County have eminent scientists in cellular and molecular biology, many with interests in the environmental sciences. On the University's largest campus in College Park, numerous MEES faculty and laboratories work in such areas as soil and aquatic microbiology and molecular and cellular biology, ecology, immunology, and physiology.
