Department of Anatomy & Regenerative Biology

The Department of Anatomy and Regenerative Biology is home to some of the University's leading educators and researchers. As a traditional anatomy department, educational efforts are directed toward undergraduate and graduate courses in gross anatomy, microscopic anatomy, embryology and neuroanatomy for medical, health sciences, physical therapy, and basic science students. As a modern biomedical research department, faculty members direct NIH-funded projects, with a focus on molecular, cellular, developmental, and physiological aspects in the field of stem cell and regenerative biology. Research-active faculty belong to the University's interdisciplinary graduate program in biomedical sciences, which leads to Ph.D. degrees in Biochemistry and Systems Biology, Molecular Medicine, or Microbiology and Immunology.
