The twofold mission of the Cell Biology Program of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center is to:

  • Define the molecular and cellular basis of neoplastic transformation, growth and metastasis.
  • Provide insights into normal and aberrant functions of genetic lesions.

The Cell Biology Program focuses on four areas of research:

  • Transcription, chromatin and epigenetics of cancer
  • Mitosis, senescence and aging
  • Cell signaling and receptor/membrane traffic
  • Cell adhesion, migration and metastasis
