The Molecular Genetics of Basic Cell Function is an NIH-funded training program based in the Molecular Microbiology graduate program of the Sackler School and includes faculty members from a number of departments of Tufts University and the School of Medicine. The program trains predoctoral students with specific interests in the genetic basis of basic cellular processes as they relate to human health and disease.
Program investigators direct detailed studies of bacteria, fungi, eukaryotic parasites and mammals. Research topics include chromosome recombination, replication and segregation; evolution of genes and genomes; gene function; regulation of transcription and translation; RNA processing; viral resistance; cell-to-cell communication; signal recognition and transduction; and membrane fusion.
Our program has funding for five predoctoral trainees.
