Overview

Our mission  from the Molecular and Cellular Biology at University of Arizona  is to reveal the secrets of nature and to educate the next generation of science innovators.

Research

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.

Education

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. 

Programme Structure

We have a diverse group of research interests including 

  • cancer, 
  • neurobiology, 
  • heart development and disease,
  •  plant development, 
  • evolutionary biology, 
  • cell signaling,
