Our graduate education programs emphasize an interdisciplinary and inter-departmental approach for studying the molecular, cellular and genetic pathways of cell function and their relationship to human disease.
The postdoctoral experience emphasizes scholarship and continued academic training in preparation for a permanent position in any sector.
Our faculty study fundamental cellular processes and pathways using a variety of techniques from classical genetics and fluorescence microscopy to high-throughput genomics, systems biology, and crystallography.
Modern cell biology is a multi-disciplinary affair. While at the cutting edge in many areas, particular strengths of the department include Glycobiology and Stem Cell Biology.
