The Cell Biology Program at SKI is an innovative, world-class program where we elucidate the mysteries how cells work and educate the next generations of scientists in an inclusive and supportive environment.
Now and in the past, we discover fundamental aspects of cells and their interactions with each other using state-of-the-art technologies, ranging from molecular and cellular imaging to advanced mass spectrometry and innovative tissue culture and animal models.
Our research activities span:
- Biochemistry and Biophysics
- Cell division, differentiation, migration, morphogenesis and would healing
- Cell death
- Cell signaling
- Cellular machines in protein homeostasis, cytoskeleton and membrane biology
- Neurobiology and neurodegenerative diseases
- Organelle Biology
