The department of Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology conducts a broad range of research in molecular mechanisms underlying cell biology and organismal development. We are a community of faculty, postdoctoral scholars, students and staff committed to advancing our research and enhancing education.
MGCB faculty investigate molecular aspects of biological phenomena that operate on a cellular scale. The Department currently represents research on a wide range of biological problems and systems - its internationally recognized strengths include:
- invertebrate and vertebrate development
- plant development and plant-pathogen interactions
- molecular biology
- cellular structure and function
Current faculty work on fundamental problems in biology using a wide range of model systems including viruses, bacteria, protozoa, fungi, plants, nematode worms, fruit flies, fish and mice.
