24-12-2011 12:55 Research interests include cellular neuroscience, developmental biology and genetics, immunology, microbiology and lipid transport, in both plants and animals. Molecular mechanisms that control cell structure and function as well as the organization of cells into complex organs or organ systems within single organisms. How do the cells respond to stress? How is the expression of key proteins regulated? How do cells use energy ? How do cells make your heart beat - your brain think - your eyes see? How does the action of individual cells translate into working organs and systems? How do the cells organize themselves into complex organs or organ systems in such a way that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts? How can certain organisms survive in an extreme environment? Further career and educational opportunities: The Cells, Molecules and Physiology stream prepares students for careers in Medicine, Diagnostics, Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals, Cancer Research, Bioengineering, Forensics, Science Writing, Science Education, Genetic Counseling, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine, consulting in the areas of toxicology, fisheries, and more. Practical knowledge Learn about the science behind the headlines: understand the new developments in how we identify and treat illnesses, modify crops for drought tolerance and higher nutrition, clone cells and organisms. This video includes interviews with graduate students and professors in Biological Sciences at SFU.
