The Department of Biology was expanded into the Department of Cell Biology, Microbiology and Molecular Biology (CMMB) and the Department of Integrated Biology (IB) in 2009. Each Department has its own Chair and Graduate Director and offers students a Master of Science in Biology with a specific concentration associated with either CMMB or IB. There is no general Biology M.S. major. The CMMB and IB Departments are located in modern, well-equipped buildings. Research in the CMMB Department is done by faculty housed in the Interdisciplinary Science Building and the Bio-Science Facility building (BSF), and most of the research within the IB Department is conducted by faculty housed in the Science Center building (SCA). Because of the interdisciplinary aspect of most research projects, faculty and graduate students often work together on broad training research projects that bring together many of the traditionally separate areas of biology. Many of the faculty within CMMB and IB are involved in cooperative research with their colleagues in Chemistry, Public Health, Nursing, Medicine, Geology, Psychology, Geography, Marine Science, and Environmental Science. Often CMMB and IB graduate students have faculty members from these other areas of USF as members of their graduate committees.
