Biology of Hereditary Disorders Cell Cycle, Cancer and Aging Nuclear Structure and Function Cell Motility and Cytoskeleton Cell Signaling and Regulatory Networks Genetic and Epigenetic Regulation of Gene Expression Mammalian Development and Differentiation Musculoskeletal Biology and Pathology Neurobiology and Brain Disorders Reproductive Biology Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine

 The Department of Cell and Developmental Biology is at the center of exciting new advances in understanding basic biological and biomedical processes to promote clinical and translational science. Research addresses the organization, assembly and activity of the regulatory machinery for cell growth and aging, differentiation and development, as well as genetic and epigenetic control of gene expression in human embryonic stem cells and lineage committed cells; with implications for treatment of cancers, bone diseases, reproductive disorders, genetic conditions and neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders.
