In order to meet the immense challenge of deciphering the complexity of biology, it is essential to harness the ideas of people of all backgrounds. 

The Cell Biology Department has a weekly Progress Report series in which graduate students and postdocs present an overview of their research.

The Cell Biology Department hosts a seminar series in which scientists from other institutions are invited to present their research.

The Department will be initiating a monthly “Beyond the Bench” series that will feature seminars, workshops, and panel discussions.

Cell Biology has an annual Departmental Retreat with the main purpose to foster inter-departmental contact and engage in scientific discussions and social activities.

The Department has initiated a Postdoctoral Associate/Fellow and Associate Research Scientist Mentoring Program led by Dr. Julia von Blume and Dr. Yongli Zhang.
