MCDB Prof Sara Aton and some enterprising students are gathering evidence in the lab that supports a bold claim: Your brain learns new things while you’re sleeping.
- Basic research on the function of living organisms with focus on the molecular and cellular levels of all branches of life — bacteria, plants, and animals. Learn what our faculty focus on and the model organisms we study.
- Graduate programs with about 60 PhD students, and about 12 masters students
- Cell and Molecular Biology undergraduate major with nearly 200 graduates each year.
Our researchers answer common questions related to their work on sleep, probiotics, protein folding, and more!
