Cedarville molecular and cellular biology students have the opportunity to study under highly educated, experienced instructors who love the Lord. Students perform experiments in excellent lab and classroom facilities, and have opportunities to do research on-campus. In addition, many students choose to pursue summer internships which further enhance their research skills.
"After graduating from Cedarville’s molecular and cellular biology program, I got my MD from the Northeastern Ohio Medical University in Rootstown, Ohio, completed a residency in pediatrics at Akron Children's Hospital, and am currently employed as a Pediatric Chief Resident at Akron Children's Hospital. My research interest presently is La Crosse Encephalitis. Future plans are to pursue a fellowship in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. The preparation that I received from the molecular and cellular biology program has served me very well as I have gone through my medical training."

"The molecular and cellular biology program enabled me to participate in several related research internships during my time at Cedarville and laid the foundation for me to succeed in medical school. Even as an orthopedic surgery resident, I still find myself applying the principles of molecular and cellular biology on a weekly basis both in research and in clinical practice."

"After I graduated from Cedarville, I went to the Southwest School of Medical Technology and became a certified Medical Laboratory Scientist. I worked for the next three years as a generalist MLS at Southwest General. Working 2nd shift as an MLS was interesting and fulfilling, but I missed learning about molecular and cell biology every day and I developed an interest in innovating new diagnostic tools. Thus, in the autumn of 2014 I entered the Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology program at the Ohio State University. My classes and research opportunities in Cedarville's molecular and cell biology program definitely helped prepare me for both of these endeavors."
