Program in Molecular Medicine Core Values

Diversity is a core value of the Program in Molecular Medicine and of the UMass Chan Medical School, the only public medical school in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Our faculty, students and staff strive to embrace diversity as an essential strength of our outstanding research and education enterprise. It is our differences – race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion – that enhance and strengthen our resolve to be the best we can be in our pursuits of research, teaching and public service. Diversity broadens and deepens the scholarly environment of our program, as our students, faculty and staff teach each other how to interact in a manner that is accepting and respectful of our differences, promoting all of us to succeed in an increasingly complex and global society. A diverse community of scholars generates more, and richer, ideas which lead to research excellence.

Overview of the Program in Molecular Medicine

The Program in Molecular Medicine was established in 1989 in the Two Biotech building located within the overall Medical School campus in the Massachusetts Biotechnology Research Park. The primary goal of the Program was to attract top academic scientists to meet the challenge of investigating exciting problems in biomedicine in the context of a collaborative culture. Michael Czech was appointed as the Founding Director. The Program was granted Department status in 2000.

The strategy for the scientific development of the Program was to assemble outstanding investigators with diverse, but overlapping scientific interests in order to probe molecular mechanisms that underlie physiological processes and the diseases associated with them.
