Cell Biology and Neuroscience (CBN) provides an exciting and challenging academic environment by combining excellence in research with a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.  CBN research encompasses the complementary areas of cell biology, developmental biology and neurobiology with an emphasis on fundamental problems in cell signaling and communication. Current areas of focus are biomolecular recognition and cell communication as well as molecular mechanisms of neuronal signaling and synaptic plasticity.  CBN takes a comprehensive approach that begins with introductory lecture courses, continues with advanced topics seminar courses, and culminates in advanced laboratory coursework.

Research Highlight

Neuron Cell Death and Alzheimer’s Disease

herrup-neuron

Work in Prof. Karl Herrup’s lab focuses on the causes of neuron death in diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Of particularly interest in the regulation of the cell cycle in the adult neuron and its relationship with cell death.
