The interdisciplinary research programs in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at the University of Michigan employ powerful in vivo and in vitro model systems, molecular genetic tools, sophisticated biochemistry and microscopy techniques. They uncover fundamental mechanisms that control cell behavior at all stages of life: from cell birth and cell division, the maintenance of cellular integrity and trafficking of cell components, interactions with the internal and external environment, responses to stress, and finally aging and cell death. We build diverse, intergenerational research teams of undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows who work together to make discoveries with significant implications for understanding human health and disease.
