When the COVID-19 outbreak forced labs on campus to temporarily close, LSA Professor Ann Miller and her labmates maintained research momentum and personal connection with a bit of creativity, tea, and a lesson from frogs.
In class, Monica Dus helps her students understand how research is done and evaluated. In her lab, she tries to understand why we're hooked on sugar. In the winter 2020 semester, COVID-19 underscored why the science behind all of her work is so important.
- 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!
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, MCDB needs your support.
