Department of Cellular Biology & Anatomy Graduate Students


CBA graduate students 2016

The graduate program in the Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy offers research training opportunities in the dynamic field of cell biology. The department has strong collaborative ties with many of the research centers, institutes and clinical departments on campus and offers a rich environment for scientific discovery and dissemination of new knowledge. Students are graduate research assistants and have the opportunity to pursue research that covers the continuum of development, normal processes, disease/degeneration and death. Some of our faculty investigate polarity and patterning in developing organisms. Other faculty members study mechanisms of protection, repair and regeneration related to diseases of the kidney, bone, breast, visual and auditory systems and the central nervous system. A broad array of genetic, molecular, cell biological, and biochemical tools are used in vivo and in vitro studies of multiple model systems including rodents, zebrafish, drosophila. There are numerous substantive interactions with clinicians offering myriad opportunities for translational research.
