BESE DIVISION RESEARCH AREA:
CELLULAR & MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
Cellular and Molecular Biology is home to a highly collaborative group of faculty with internationally recognized research strengths in the areas of epigenetics, genomics and computational biology, molecular evolution and development, stem cells, and neuroscience. Through the study of a variety of model organisms ranging from viruses, bacteria, different cell types, coral reefs and plants to C. elegans, fish, and mice, this coherent research community creates an intellectual space that embraces thinking across different research areas and academic disciplines. It also utilizes a wide range of cutting-edge multidisciplinary experimental approaches. The group is deeply engaged in both fundamental research and its applications.
