operates within the Division of Biological Sciences. Its faculty investigate molecular aspects of biological phenomena that operate on a cellular scale. The Department currently represents research on a wide range of biological problems and systems - its internationally recognized strengths include:
- invertebrate and vertebrate development
- plant development and plant pathogen interactions
- molecular biology
- cellular structure and function
- yeast genetics
administers the Cell
and Molecular Biology Graduate program in the Molecular
Biosciences Graduate Training Program Cluster. The
cluster combines five programs: Cell
and Molecular Biology (CMB), Biochemistry
and Molecular Biology (BMB), Human
Genetics (HG), Genetics,
Genomics & Systems Biology (GGSB), and Development, Regeneration, and Stem Cell Biology (DRSB). MGCB also plays key roles in the undergraduate
biology curricula at the University.
The University of Chicago's Grossman Institute of Neuroscience and the Dept. of Molecular Genetic and Cell Biology jointly invite applications for tenure-track faculty in Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience.
