Human Biology Division

Exploring Biological Systems to Find New Ways to Fight Cancer and Other Diseases

Grounded in high-quality science, researchers in the Human Biology Division perform fundamental, applied and translational research in model organisms and in vitro systems. With backgrounds in molecular and cell biology, genomics, genetics, virology, infectious disease, computational biology, pathology and clinical research, these investigators form an interdisciplinary team that in other institutions would likely be spread out over multiple departments. Together, they propel research toward new and improved approaches to the treatment and prevention of cancers and infectious diseases.

Accelerating Advances

Our labs explore cancer and infectious diseases at a molecular and genetic level to discover new forms of treatment.

“What drives me is making an impact in patients’ lives. Research is a continuous and intense process, not a short-term outcome.”

— Dr. Taran Gujral, cancer biologist
