Research Strengths

Cell Biology

Cell biologists are studying the inner workings of the cell from protein structure to dynamics and trafficking to how organs are formed. We use molecular genetics to manipulate proteins in cells and microscopy, mass spectrometry, mathematical modeling and other analytical platforms to understand cellular function.
