Text Box:  TRAINING PROGRAM IN SIGNALING & CELLULAR REGULATION

AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT BOULDER

 

The SCR Graduate Training Program began in 1991 as a joint effort between faculty members in the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry and MCDB, in order to promote interactions between laboratories, to share perspectives and expertise, and to provide a common base of graduate student mentorship. 

 

Members of the program engage in research aimed at obtaining a mechanistic understanding of signal transduction and cell cycle regulation, which includes cellular signaling pathways and downstream targets, cell differentiation and organismal development, responses to cell stress and nutritional requirements, and programmed cell death. 

 

Specialized training in signal transduction and cell cycle regulation is provided by formal graduate coursework, journal clubs, seminars, Signaling Supergroup and Bioinformatics Supergroup research meetings, and original scientific research in this area.  We provide multi-disciplinary training using combined approaches of biochemistry, biophysics, chemistry, pharmacology, cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, and molecular biology.
