Our mission from the Molecular and Cellular Biology at University of Arizona is to reveal the secrets of nature and to educate the next generation of science innovators.

Research

We use innovative tools in our research to reveal fundamental biological processes that are common to all life on Earth. Our faculty focus on model systems that allow us to query the most basic of questions about nature, whether they be at the molecular level, at the level of a cell or organism or in development of clinical application of new human disease therapies.

Education

We offer student-centered educational experiences for undergraduate and graduate students. The Molecular and Cellular Biology faculty teach over 700 undergraduate majors. In addition, we teach courses available for general education of all students of any major. We also train masters and doctoral level students.

We have a diverse group of research interests including:

  • Cancer
  • Neurobiology
  • Heart development and disease
  • Plant development
  • Evolutionary biology
  • Cell signaling
  • Gene expression
  • RNA biology
  • Genetic networks and systems biology, and genome stability

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
