Microbiology/Cell and Molecular Biology is a discipline founded on experimentation. Our majors put the scientific method into practice by working in laboratories. They study how microorganisms live and interact with other organisms and the environment and learn how to harness the power of microbes for biotechnology. We offer fast track programs to our medical school in Tulsa and our veterinary school here in Stillwater. Many of our graduates go on to professional schools, such as medical school, and others find jobs in health care, medical laboratories, teaching, research, industry and government. Our graduate program provides the one-on-one mentoring students need to become successful research scientists. - Tyrrell Conway, Department Head
