In Nature article, they report that C. elegans that produced more oxidants during development lived longer than worms that produced fewer oxidants
MCDB researchers identify neurons behind mechanical itch
- 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! Find links to a podcast on the neuroepigenetics!
