Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB)

The Cell and Molecular Biology Research Group encompasses the interrelated disciplines of cell biology and molecular biology. Research areas ranging from the basic physiology of the cell to the complex workings of biological systems are being explored. Models systems studied include the plant Arabidobsis, invertebrates such as C. elegans and tobacco hornworn (Manduca sexta), and vertebrates such as Xenopus, mice, and zebra fish.

Research Areas in CMB:

  • Developmental biology
  • Hematology
  • Immunology
  • Neuroscience
  • Plant molecular biology
  • Reproductive biology
