Cell Biology

Head: Dr. William Trimble

Cells are the fundamental units of life in all organisms. Research in the Cell Biology program therefore aims to understand how cells work, and how disease processes alter those functions. Cutting-edge methods in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, and microscopy are combined with proteomics, combinatorial chemistry and high through-put robotics to examine cell physiology, inter and intracellular signaling, cell structure, and organelle function, both on a cellular and molecular level.
