Cell biology is a dynamic field rooted in the anatomical sciences. It focuses on understanding
structure and function of the cell, its physiological properties and the organization
and function of the organelles that comprise it.
Our department is dedicated to understanding cellular function through state-of-the
art research in areas such as autophagy and apoptosis, bone metabolism, developmental
biology, molecular motors, dysphagia/swallowing disorders, exosome biology, renal
disease, stem cell research, vision science (retina and cornea), and cell wounding.
We are dedicated to conveying new knowledge to future scientists and educating the
next generation of scientists, clinicians and other healthcare professionals. We welcome
your interest in our department and invite you to learn more about exciting research
and educational opportunities within the department!
Mission: The Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy has as its core mission the advancement
of outstanding research and education. We work collaboratively to discover new knowledge
through innovative biomedical research, to transmit that knowledge to students, and
to train future researchers, educators and health care professionals.
