The Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM) was established in 1997 as a Center within Maine Medical Center Research Institute (MMCRI) with the vision of performing cutting edge biomedical research to discover the molecular mechanisms of human disease, and to harness new knowledge in developmental biology and stem cells for regenerative medicine approaches.
The investigators at CMM are committed to translating basic science discoveries to innovative approaches to diagnose and treat human disease. Key to the success of research at CMM is the highly collaborative nature of its investigators, which promotes multidisciplinary research by engaging MMC physicians and other investigators in the region.

All of the Principal Investigators in CMM are adjunct faculty in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences & Engineering, which is a cooperative PhD program with the University of Maine, The Jackson Laboratory, and four other research institutes within Maine. CMM also supports undergraduate educational opportunities through the Summer Student Research Program and internship programs
