Research groups in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology share a common interest in exploring the mechanisms underlying the coordinated behaviors of molecules, cells and tissues to form living organisms. We combine genetic, biochemical, molecular, cell biological and quantitative approaches to investigate fundamental biological processes across a range of organisms, from viruses and microbes to plants, worms, flies, fish and mammals. We are committed to excellence in research and teaching, and offer students a diversity of course offerings and research opportunities. The commonalities of our research interests combined with varied experimental approaches help forge a rigorous yet interdisciplinary and collaborative environment.

The department strives to provide a diverse and inclusive environment for all members of our community.  More…
