Welcome to the Cell Biology Department Website

The Yale School of Medicine is considered to be one of the birthplaces for modern Cell Biology; to this day it remains one of the top Cell Biology centers in the world. Our department has a rich history in exploring fundamental mechanisms of cellular function and maintains a vibrant faculty with diverse interests. The department is headed by James Rothman, the Sterling Professor of Cell Biology, and recipient of the 2013 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.
