Studies in cell biology in the Division of Biological Sciences emphasize both basic science and disease-related studies and encompass a wide variety of disciplines: from genetics and genomics to biochemistry and neurobiology. Research is concerned with cell structure as well as how cells function in the context of different tissues in various organisms. Using mammalian cells, yeast, fruit flies, transgenic mice, fish, and plants, faculty are investigating mechanisms of DNA replication, intracellular trafficking, cellular signaling, neuron structure and function, gene silencing, control of the cell cycle, and more.
