Labs and departments

Center for Cellular Dynamics labs have their homes in different departments at Penn State (BiologyBiochemistry and Molecular BiologyChemistry, and Bioengineering).


The Center is co-directed by Melissa Rolls (mur22@psu.edu) and Emily Bell (esb26@psu.edu). Please contact either of them if you have any questions about the Center or its activities!


Members participate in departmental graduate programs, as well as interdisciplinary graduate programs organized through the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences.


We use the Center for Cellular Dynamics to share ideas and expertise, to organize events that stimulate creative thinking, and create a more collaborative and exciting research community.
