Areas of Research

Today, Cell Biology at Yale comprises a dynamic and interactive group of 34 faculty members and their research laboratories that span every major area of investigation central to the field. They are joined by nearly 111 postdoctoral fellows and 73 graduate students. Our primary facilities are located at the School of Medicine and at Yale's new West Campus. 

Our field is developing rapidly at areas of interface between conventional molecular cell biology of single cells and more complex cellular systems at one extreme, and at the interface with protein structure and molecular mechanism at the other.

We maintain a high level of capability in electron microscopy, including immunocytochemistry and tomography; in conventional optical microscopy at our Center for Cell & Molecular Imaging (CCMI), which performs state of the art electron microscopy and immunocytochemistry, as well as routine single and multi-photon confocal microscopy; and the CINEMA Lab, a world leader in the development of new optical techniques for live cell imaging and quantitative analysis.
