The Department of Cell and Tissue Biology (CTB) was established in 2005 and includes 16 faculty with primary appointments and five faculty with secondary appointments. Additionally, the department is home to numerous postdoctoral fellows as well as graduate students in programs ranging from Biomedical Sciences, Tetrad and Biophysics to Developmental & Stem Cell Biology and Oral & Craniofacial Sciences. Faculty research interests include cell biology mechanisms relevant to cytoskeletal dynamics, development, metabolism, cancer, immunology and neurobiology, which are focus areas of our department. CTB faculty members are committed to graduate education and postgraduate training, and are actively engaged in ensuring a collaborative and collegial environment.
