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 Fergus F. Wallace Professor of Biomedical Sciences, and recipient of the 2013 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.
