Pathobiology of Disease

Faculty in the MCB Program are engaged in studies of the Pathobiology of Disease, many with a focus on age-related diseases.  Investigators examine the role of cell adhesion molecules in disease, the effects of alcohol on cell function and its role in disease, the regulation of cell death pathways, the role of signaling pathways in cell growth and disease.  There is also research strength in the pathobiology of degenerative diseases including Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Diseases, cataract, and retinal degeneration.
