Cell and Molecular Biology

The molecular and cellular biology (MCB) group at York is comprised of researchers utilizing forefront biochemical and molecular techniques to probe the structure and function of various biomolecules and cell biological processes. Topics as diverse as plant and human viruses, cancer, circadian rhythms, structure of signalling molecules and cellular differentiation are studied. The department also supports a growing integration of the MCB researchers with interdisciplinary groups from psychology, mathematics and statistics, kinesiology and chemistry through university wide research centres.
