Welcome to the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology


CONGRATULATIONS to the Department of Cell Biology & Physiology, ranked 1st in the country in NIH funding!

Thanks to EVERYONE for making us the BEST Department in the country!!!

The department was formed in July 2012 through the merger of the Department of Cell & Developmental Biology and the Department of Cell & Molecular Physiology. The new department brings together two strong traditions of excellence in basic science and translational research, and in pre- and post-doctoral training, including undergraduate, graduate and medical education.

The department currently houses two PhD programs: the Program in Cell & Molecular Physiology and the Program in Cell & Developmental Biology. In addition, a number of members of the department also train PhD students through the Neurobiology Curriculum and the Genetics and Molecular Biology Curriculum.
