Biochemistry & Cell Biology

About the Program

Biochemistry & Cell Biology's commitment to excellence in research, education, and service is an important part of our mission. Collegial and collaborative interactions among Geisel School of Medicine faculty, postdoctoral research associates and fellows, graduate students, Dartmouth undergraduate students and staff are integral to our culture.

A general theme of our research is focused on defining molecular mechanisms that underlie fundamental cellular processes and yet our studies continue to provide key insights on atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, neurotransmission, prion disease, kidney disease and a range of human health related issues.
