The Kucenas and Ravichandran labs have been awarded a UVA Brain Institute Award for their collaborative grant "Facilitating axon regeneration by boosting glial-mediated phagocytosis." We're thrilled about the exciting science to come!
The Cell and Molecular Biology faculty at the University of Virginia provides a comprehensive graduate training program in modern cell and molecular biological sciences. It is the purpose of the program to provide the widest possible choice of mentors, and hence, research areas, while offering an individually-tailored academic program for each graduate student. We believe that the best biological scientists are those who possess a broad knowledge of cell and molecular biology, as well as a thorough understanding of their own particular research area.
