    Previous Programs

    The faculty of the Division of Cell and Developmental Biology (CDB) pursue research aimed at detailed understanding of the structure and function of cellular components, such as membranes, organelles. chromosomes and the cytoskeleton; cellular processes, such as epithelial transport, cell motility, mitosis, protein targeting and secretion, and eukaryotic growth control; the origin of cell polarity; and the molecular and cellular basis for axis formation, morphogenetic movements, fate determination, and gene regulation during embryogenesis and cellular differentiation. These issues are being addressed in systems as diverse as yeast, sea urchins, frogs, and mammalian cells in culture, and these studies exploit techniques ranging from molecular biology and microinjection to digital imaging and mathematical modeling.
