CDP research image
The Division of Cell and Developmental Biology has been renamed the Division of Cell Biology, Development, & Physiology (CDP). The rationale for the name change is to acknowledge the importance of physiology as a primary research topic in the division, and to better enable the recruitment of trainees and faculty with research interests in this area. Moreover, the new name reflects the popularity of the Medical Biology & Physiology track of our undergraduate major, and of our undergraduate course in Physiology, which is by far our most heavily enrolled upper-division course. Thus, our new name captures the diversity of the research being conducted in the division as well as the breadth of our teaching mission.

IMM research image The Division of Immunology and Pathogenesis has been renamed the Division of Immunology and Molecular Medicine (IMM). The new name better captures the breadth of research going on in the division as well as the directions in which we hope to grow. The cornerstone of the division has always been, and will continue to be, immunology, but the field of immunology has expanded and now includes many other areas of biology. The immune system plays a role in most human diseases, and many members of our division are working to harness or manipulate the immune system for therapeutic benefit. We wanted a divisional name that captures this broader effort.
