Study Cell-to-cell Signalling in Development and Disease

Do you have a clear and specific interest in cancer, stem cells, or developmental biology? Join our program and combine research in oncology, molecular developmental biology, and genetics. Discover the mysteries of embryonic growth, stem cells, signaling, gene regulation, evolution, and development as they relate to health and disease.

Contribute to a Better Understanding of Disease Treatment and Prevention

Given that fundamental developmental processes are so often impacted by the disease, an understanding of these processes is vital to a better understanding of disease treatment and prevention. Adult physiology is regulated by developmental genes and mechanisms which, if deregulated, may result in pathological conditions.

Become an expert on molecular and cellular aspects of development and disease and create a better understanding of processes underlying cancer and developmental biology. Use techniques and applications of post-genomic research, including single-cell and next-generation sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics, and advanced microscopy techniques.
