The research interests of program faculty span the breadth of molecular biology.

Faculty interests include:

  • DNA replication, RNA transcription, localization and mRNA translation
  • Bioinformatics and computational biology
  • Intracellular regulation of cell division, signaling, cell migration and cell polarization Regulation of cell stress response and molecular assemblies
  • Genetic and molecular mechanisms governing organismal development, tissue differentiation and cell fates
  • Structural biology of macromolecular machines, proteins and nucleic acids
  • Pathogenic mechanisms of infectious and non-communicable disease
  • Drug discovery and molecular mechanisms of drug resistance and response
  • Technology and methods development, including optogenetics and gene editing

Note: "MOLB Non-Training Faculty" do not serve as thesis mentors for Molecular Biology students and are not accepting Molecular Biology students into their labs.
