Welcome to the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology

Congratulations to the Department of Cell Biology & Physiology, ranked 2nd in the country in NIH funding!

Kechele ImageThe 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.

"Building a better microscope"  

Smith MicroWhen Spencer Smith, assistant professor of cell biology and physiology in the School of Medicine who studies the brain, grew frustrated with the lack of resolution provided by traditional microscopes, he and his co-inventor Jeffrey Stirman decided to build his own. The results could unlock some of the brain's greatest mysteries.
