The Division of Cell Biology and Biophysics

The Division of Cell Biology and Biophysics (CBB) is one of two academic sub-divisions of the School of Biological Sciences. The Division consists of 20 full-time faculty together with supporting research and teaching personnel, who are distributed in offices and laboratories throughout the Biological Sciences Building and adjoining Spencer Chemistry Building.

The CBB faculty research interests cover all areas of modern molecular and cellular biology. The teaching mission of CBB comprises a variety of undergraduate level biology courses (including general biology, cell biology, developmental biology, microbiology, immunology, anatomy and biophysics), graduate level courses in areas of molecular and cell biology, and specialty courses for health professional students.

Together with the doctoral faculty members of the Division of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry (MBB), the doctoral faculty members of CBB direct the interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs of study for graduate students electing a major emphasis area in the School of Biological Sciences.

The offices of the CBB Administrative Staff and Division Head are located on the fourth floor of the Biological Sciences Building (Rooms 403-405 BSB). All enquiries regarding CBB programs, personnel, and related teaching and research operations should be directed to the Division Office (816-235-5247).
