Department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology & Anatomy

CBNA is one of MCW’s six research-intensive basic science Departments and at the same time retains its historical and essential role in medical education via the first year “Clinical Human Anatomy”, “Neuroscience” and “Molecules to Cells” courses and through its interdisciplinary teaching the 2nd year of the Discovery Curriculum. Research areas in CBNA are focused in basic cell biology, developmental biology and neurobiology and currently include development of the heart, gastrointestinal system, retina and brain as well as the biology of muscle atrophy and plasticity. The Department’s major efforts in cellular neurobiology of peripheral nociceptors, the regulation of energy metabolism, cellular trafficking in retinal photoreceptors and the mechanisms of learning and memory have made it a major strength in MCW’s research strategy to develop a Neuroscience Center.
