Molecular Biology

The School has a long record of research in the area of molecular biology. We are interested in understanding the molecular basis of cellular processes, such as signal transduction, the regulation of gene expression, tumorigenesis, and the control of cell division. Our work into identifying relevant genes and proteins, and deciphering their mechanisms of actions involves using many of sophisticated techniques, including genomic analysis by microarrays, proteomic chip technologies, protein purification and analysis by mass spectroscopy, and cell culture and transgenic mouse experiments.
