Welcome new incoming BBSP Students!

Rotation projects are available in cardiovascular disease and cancer to 1) translate lipid inhibitors of platelet aggregation into therapeutics to prevent thrombotic events and 2) use targeted and systems biology approaches to explore CIB1 in cancer cell and endothelial cell biology.

These are the broad areas of research happening in our department: Cellular Biology, Genetics & Molecular Biology, Biophysical Studies.
