MCB's 21 primary faculty represent a diverse array of research that builds fundamental insight and translates into treating diseases such as cancer, neurodegeneration, and aging. Our faculty investigate a wide range of basic questions concerning cells and genes and their impact on evolution, aging, and disease. We are also researching novel approaches in science education and studying the very origins of life. Click on the research areas below to learn more about our work.
