The Division of Biomedical Cell Biology (BCB) carries out fundamental molecular and cellular research into biomedical problems.
Major human diseases such as cancer, inflammation, neuro-degeneration and bacterial/viral infection are primarily diseases of cells, and without a molecular understanding of the underlying cell biology, intelligent directed therapeutic intervention is impossible. Our research focuses on fundamental cell biology processes such as cell division and intracellular communication.
