Infection and Immunobiology

host-pathogen interactions and immunity

- cellular microbiology - interaction with host cells and tissue
- innate immunity
- adaptive immunity
- immune maturation in early life
- malaria

Integrative Biology

address genome function in the context of intact organisms

Developmental Biology
  1) making enough cells
  2) making them different
  3) organizing the different cells in space and coordinating their activities

how an intact organism functions
Model organisms: yeast, flies, mice, and salamander

Molecular Cell Biology

gene and protein function within cells

- genome integrity
- RNA biology
- protein homeostasis
- actin biology
- cellular responses to environmentally induced signals
- cell cycle
