Developmental Biology

Developmental Biology

The goal of cell and developmental biology research is to understand how individual cells are compartmentalized, and how the proliferation and differentiation of cells is controlled to form distinct tissues and organ systems. Cell and developmental biology researchers use a wide variety of experimental approaches including biochemistry, structural biology, cell biology, imaging, genetics, and molecular biology to understand how cells respond to developmental and environmental signals, and how aberrant developmental processes contribute to diseases such as cancer.
