Cell and Developmental Biology aims to understand how cells proliferate, differentiate and become coordinated to form diverse complex multicellular organisms. Such knowledge is applicable to understanding the origin, function and diversity of complex life and is directly relevant to problems in multiple disciplines, from improving crop yields to better understanding processes in cancer, wound healing, and even the application of stem cells for organ replacement. Cell and Developmental Biology provides undergraduate units of study that are transdisciplinary in nature.
