The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics engages in cutting-edge research, training, and teaching to solve basic questions in the life sciences and to apply biological knowledge to critical medical, agricultural and environmental problems. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of scientists, teachers, and communicators by providing research mentorship and classroom instruction in biochemistry, bioinformatics, cell biology, genetics, and molecular biology and by initiating and participating in collaborative research across the Cornell campuses.
Two Cornell faculty members have been named Freeman Hrabowski Scholars by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, in recognition of their potential to become leaders in their research fields and to create diverse and inclusive lab environments.
Johannes Lehmann, Colin Parrish, Bik-Kwoon Tye and Michelle Wang are Cornell’s 2023 electees to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), the academy announced May 2 at the close of its 160th annual meeting.
