Faculty

The Department of Developmental Biology is currently composed of 16 full time faculty members on the investigator track.  Current research in the Department addresses diverse aspects of developmental biology, from early embryogenesis through gastrulation, cell fate specification and reprogramming, organogenesis to aging, as well as embryonic and adult stem cells.

Over the next five years, we aim to recruit six new faculty members.  Ongoing and future faculty searches will focus on the new areas of developmental biology, including epigenetic regulation of cell fate decisions and quantitative/systems biology approaches.  All Developmental Biology faculty members are rising or renowned and productive scientists, who are fully engaged in building a leading developmental biology department.
