Exploring the molecular foundations of biology and disease.
The Department of Molecular Biosciences is composed of faculty members studying molecular, microbial, cellular, developmental, chemical, and systems biology. By spanning such a wide range of expertises and interests, the faculty are developing novel approaches to biological problems and offer unique perspectives to students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Research Centers & Institutes
Our department is constantly adapting to the fast-paced change that accompanies modern biological sciences. Central to this continual transformation is our close association with a number of interdisciplinary centers at The University of Texas at Austin that provide bridges between the faculty and broader clinical and commercial communities, enhance the productivity of the faculty, and our enliven educational and outreach efforts.
Diverse Research Interests
Our large faculty work in diverse research areas in the basic biological sciences, from biochemistry to developmental biology and infectious disease.
