Developmental Biology, Stem Cells & Aging

Metazoan biology requires cells to develop into defined cell types, with stem cells providing key regenerative capacity. Aging is the cumulative failure of regeneration and cellular maintenance. MCB faculty explore how organisms develop from single cells, how stem cells provide regrowth, and how loss of function in fundamental processes contributes to aging.
