We use innovative tools in our research to reveal fundamental biological processes that are common to all life on Earth. Our faculty focus on model systems that allow us to query the most basic of questions about nature, whether they be at the molecular level, at the level of a cell or organism or in development of clinical application of new human disease therapies.
We offer student-centered educational experiences for undergraduate and graduate students. The Molecular and Cellular Biology faculty teach over 700 undergraduate majors. In addition, we teach courses available for general education of all students of any major. We also train masters and doctoral level students.
