 The Department of Cell and Developmental Biology is at the center of exciting new advances in understanding basic biological and biomedical processes to promote clinical and translational science. Research addresses the organization, assembly and activity of the regulatory machinery for cell growth and aging, differentiation and development, as well as genetic and epigenetic control of gene expression in human embryonic stem cells and lineage committed cells; with implications for treatment of cancers, bone diseases, reproductive disorders, genetic conditions and neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders.
