Our department conducts basic and applied research in a diverse range of disciplines spanning biochemistry, biophysics, molecular genetics, cell biology, systems biology, computational biology, and bioinformatics. The unifying theme in all of these interests is the central focus on a molecular perspective. Teaching and training programs are also an essential pursuit.
