Department of Cell Biology

Our scientists study cellular function to identify new ways to treat disease.

The Department of Cell Biology at NYU Langone Health brings together scientists who study the mechanisms that control essential aspects of cell behavior.

Our faculty investigate the basic principles of gene function and aim to elucidate cellular changes associated with health and disease. Using modern imaging tools and quantitative techniques, we lead innovative research projects that take a cellular approach to research areas such as cancer biology, developmental biology, stem cell biology, structural biology, immunology, and neurobiology.

Our research is intertwined with our teaching mission. Through intensive, interdisciplinary training programs, our faculty mentor a new generation of cellular biologists, helping them build the skills they need to lead labs of their own.
