Department of Developmental & Molecular Biology


Welcome to the Department of Developmental & Molecular Biology. The department consists of 20 research groups studying the function of complex biological systems using a wide variety of model organisms including drosophila, zebrafish, mice and human cell culture. We use cutting edge techniques to understand the processes involved in cell and tissue polarity, protein processing and trafficking, stem cell fate decisions, and regulation of cellular signaling in cancer, diabetes and other diseases.
