Department of Cell Biology Research
Faculty researchers in NYU Langone’s Department of Cell Biology study essential aspects of cellular function and work to discern how changes in cell behavior result in disease. Active areas of research include protein trafficking through subcellular organelles, cellular stress response, mitochondrial function, cell–cell interactions and signaling pathways involved in development and tissue homeostasis, nervous system function, stem cell biology, immune response, and cancer.
Our research faculty are leaders in the field of cell biology.
