Cell Biology and Physiology (CBP)

CBP was formed in 2015 by the merger of the Section of Cell and Developmental Biology and the Section of Molecular Integrative Physiology. Our section consists of 11 research units focusing on the molecular and cellular bases of human diseases and genetic disorders as well as physiological adaptations in response to environmental challenges. You can read more about our research here. The members of the section disseminate their knowledge through collaborations with the industry and university hospitals, publications and contribution to a variety of courses, ranging from cell biology and physiology over medical sciences to advanced molecular disciplines. Read more about our courses here.

Research at CBP

Our area of interest reach from genome research, structure and function of cells, membrane transport, metabolism and cellular signaling over physical activity to the development and organization of cells into tissues and tissues into organs in health and disease. CBP enjoys strong collaborations with other UCPH departments in natural and health sciences. Read more

Centres and excellence programs

CBP is engaged in several research centers as well as excellence and synergy programs with focus on interdisciplinary research. Read more

Teaching at CBP

CBP has its main teaching competencies and obligations within cell biology and physiology to students of Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biomedicine at all levels. Further, our section teaches in cellular signaling in health and disease, molecular biology, developmental biology, comparative anatomy, gene technology and genome and microbiome research. Read more

Media and public outreach

Media outreach and production of educational movies are fundamental parts of CBP in order to stimulate public knowledge around our research.  Interviews, articles in popular science magazines and movies can be seen here
