The Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology focuses on providing a premiere training environment for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and basic science education to medical students. The research interests of our faculty include cell, molecular and cancer biology, particularly relating to cell membranes, RNA trafficking, nuclear organization, the cytoskeleton, cell motility and metastasis. The department’s laboratories have developed fluorescent proteins and cell and animal models to perform sophisticated analyses of cell structure and function both in vitro and in vivo. Methods range from single molecule to intravital imaging using state of the art light and electron microscopy resources. Our faculty is acclaimed for their graduate and medical teaching.
