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.

Mechanisms of Immune Regulation and Cancer


Research in Dr. Ping Xie’s lab investigates molecular mechanisms of immune regulation using conditional knockout mice as model systems. Dysregulation of the immune system contribute to the pathogenesis of a number of diseases, including autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases and cancers.
