Developmental Biology, Stem Cells & Aging

The MCB program's strengths in developmental biology and regenerative medicine are many. Active programs study organism development in models such as  zebrafish, Drosophila, and Arabidopsis.  

The Seattle Developmental Biology Group meets several times a year to communicate new ideas.  http://dbg.fhcrc.org

Cutting edge stem cell research is carried out at the Institute for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine (ISCRM), located on the South Lake Union campus.   http://depts.washington.edu/iscrm/education/students.php

Aging research is supported by the Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in Basic Biology of Aging  http://www.uwaging.org/
