Who We Are
The Department of Cell and Regenerative Biology is committed to
understanding the fundamental mechanisms by which living systems operate at
cellular and molecular levels of organization.
By embracing a wide range of contemporary and emerging approaches and
experimental systems, we seek to define signaling and regulatory pathways
that provide the basis for understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human disease.
Basic research is the centerpiece of the Department and serves as the
driving force behind teaching and training efforts.
The overarching research interests of the Department are highly interdisciplinary,
emphasizing molecular, cellular and systems approaches to describe biological processes in molecular terms.
To maintain its excellence and stature, the Department is currently focusing on existing
strengths in four research areas: Cell and Molecular Biology, Developmental Biology,
Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, and Cardiovascular Biology.
