Cell Analysis and Modeling Graduate Program

UCHC’s Quantitative Cell Biology research has grown into the area in Cell Analysis and Modeling. Faculty associated with this area explore complex biological systems using the tools of computational cell biology, optical imaging and other quantitative approaches to analyze processes in living cells. Our program is designed to train students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds in the cutting-edge research techniques that comprise the interdisciplinary research of modern cell biology. Students are provided with rigorous cross training in areas of mathematical, physical, and computational sciences and biology. Cell Analysis and Modeling students take courses, attend seminars and work on interdisciplinary research projects to broaden and strengthen their abilities to do quantitative cell biology research.

The Cell Analysis and Modeling (CAM) area of concentration is based within the Richard D. Berlin Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling (CCAM) at UCHC. Established in 1994, CCAM has emerged as a Center that promotes the application of physics, chemistry and computation to cell biology. The environment of CCAM is designed to promote interdisciplinary interactions and its cadre of physical scientists are supported and valued in a way that is unique for a medical school.

The program is particularly strong in the following areas of research:

Cellular Modeling
  • Analysis and Simulation
  • Data Integration
  • Modeling Movies Boundaries
  • Modularity and Multistate Complexes
  • Molecular Flux in Crowded Spaces
  • Stochastic Modeling and Discrete Particles

Optical Imaging

  • Fluorescent Correlation spectroscopy
  • Optical Probe Development
  • Second Harmonic Generation
  • Single Molecule Imaging
Biophysics
  • Biological Signaling Platforms
  • In vivo nanofabrication

Cell Biology

  • Cellular Tissues and Development
  • Cytoskeletal Dynamics
  • RNA trafficking
  • Signal Transduction
  • Molecular Medicine

 


IMPORTANT NOTE: **The deadline for the receipt of all application materials for the Ph.D. in Biomedical Science program is DECEMBER 1st. **
