About Us


The faculty in CBNA conduct fundamental research in the areas of cell and developmental biology and neurobiology, and provide a first rate educational experience for students of the Medical College of Wisconsin and its Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Although strongly overlapping due to common technologies the department’s cell-based research programs currently include cell and developmental biology of the heart, liver, retina and brain and
 the biology of muscle atrophy and plasticity. Additional, research programs focus on plasticity, energy metabolism, and pain mechanisms in the nervous system.
