Synchronous Cell Proliferation in Fruit Fly Eye Precursor Cells (Bob Duronio Lab)
The opportunity and excitement provided by research in the biomedical sciences has never been greater. With the sequence of the human genome and that of nearly every model organism in hand, the scientific community is poised to make great strides in our understanding of basic biological processes, and their relationship to disease. As a graduate student in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology (MCDB) at Carolina you can be part of the cutting-edge research that makes this such an exhilarating time.
Our faculty and students use a wide variety of modern approaches, including genomics, molecular genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry, to study basic biological processes. We excel in using model organisms, including single-celled organisms such as E. coli and S. cerevisiae, the plant Arabidopsis, and animals like C. elegans, Drosophila, Xenopus, and mouse.
