The Department of Molecular, Cell and Cancer Biology (MCCB) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School was established in 2015, and is the product of a merger between the Program in Gene Function and Expression and the Department of Cancer Biology. MCCB researchers endeavor to identify and characterize novel genes and proteins involved in a diverse number of basic cellular functions including: protein-DNA recognition, regulation of gene expression, DNA damage and repair, chromosome structure and function, inter- and intra-cellular signaling, intracellular trafficking, cell proliferation and apoptosis. The ultimate goal of this research is to understand the molecular pathways governing normal biological processes, such as immunity, development and aging, as well as the genesis of various diseases including diabetes and cancer.
