Welcome to the Sealy Center for Molecular Medicine. We are a center focused on understanding cell stress response pathways using high-throughput systems-based approaches. Cell response pathways under active investigation include the DNA damage response and the innate signaling pathways. We are developing new mechanistic and computational understanding of complex cellular responses to epithelial mesenchymal transition. This research program in personalized medicine will allow us to understand cell stress responses and the role it plays in common medical diseases such as asthma, cancer, diabetes and degenerative diseases.

Mission Statement

The Sealy Center for Molecular Medicine (SCMM) is an established interdisciplinary research center at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX. Our scientists are leading investigators in Departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Internal Medicine, Microbiology & Immunology, Pediatrics, Neuroscience & Cell Biology. We are part of the Institute for Translational Sciences, home of UTMBs Clinical and Translational Sciences Award.

  • To further develop outstanding research initiatives focused on stress response processes and their role in human disease.
  • To provide the leadership and expertise necessary for the successful function of state-of-the-art cores in molecular science, genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics.
  • To participate in the UTMB-wide initiative to build seamless translational research networks that take advantage of the singular high quality of basic and systems biology research being conducted in the SCMM.
