Graduate students in the Department of Cellular Biology are engaged in exciting research. They study the molecular biology of cells in experimental model systems that range from single cells to whole animals.

The Department of Cellular Biology occupies state-of-the-art research, teaching and office space on the UGA main campus. Our laboratories and programs are well funded through federal research grants. Students have access to modern research equipment. As our research is focused on living cells this is particularly true for microscopy and flow cytometry.
