About Us

Center for Cell Dynamics brings together scientists and engineers with diverse expertise to observe, measure and model dynamic cellular processes for the understanding, prevention and treatment of human diseases.

Faculty

Rong Li, PhD

Rong Li, PhD

Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, Director, Center for Cell Dynamics

Rong Li is a systems cell biologist and geneticist who studies how eukaryotic cells polarize, divide, move, and vary their genomes to adapt to the changing environment

Deborah Andrew, PhD

Deborah Andrew, PhD

Professor

Debbie Andrew is a geneticist and developmental biologist. She explores the regulation of form and function in epithelial tubes of fruit flies (Drosophila).

Yun Chen, PhD

Yun Chen, PhD

Assistant Professor

Yun Chen is interested in developing multi-scale, multi-modal imaging tools to study how mechanics integrates with other biophysical and biochemical factors to sustain normal physiology or to cause pathology.

Peter Devreotes, PhD

Peter Devreotes, PhD

Director

Peter Devreotes is Director of the Department of Cell Biology. His lab works to understand how cells sense their surroundings and move directionally in processes like embryogenesis, wound healing, and immune response.

Andrew Ewald, PhD

Andrew Ewald, PhD

Associate Professor

Andrew Ewald is an interdisciplinary cell and cancer biologist whose laboratory investigates how cells collectively drive changes in the structure and function of epithelial tissues

Andrew Holland, PhD

Andrew Holland, PhD

Assistant Professor

The Holland lab is investigating in the molecular mechanisms that control accurate chromosome distribution and the role that mitotic errors play in human health and disease.

Pablo A. Iglesias, PhD

Pablo A. Iglesias, PhD

Edward J. Schaefer Professor of Electrical Engineering

Dr. Iglesias is a computational engineer specializing on simulation of chemotaxis and cytokinesis processes and mechanisms that regulate them.

Takanari Inoue, PhD

Takanari Inoue, PhD

Associate Professor

Our group is focused on understanding how intracellular signaling gives rise to dynamic cellular functions. We develop a series of molecular sensors and actuators that enable visualization and manipulation of target signal transduction at high spatio
