Centre for Cell Biology, Development, and Disease (C2D2)
The Centre for Cell biology, Development, and Disease (C2D2) was inaugurated in 2014.
It is a collaborative endeavour in SFU's Faculty of Science that includes the Departments of Biological Science, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology, Chemistry, and Physics.
• To enhance the research potential of groups focused on cell and developmental mechanisms of human, animal, and plant diseases.
• To establish greater cohesion and collaborative opportunities amongst researchers.
• To enhance student and postdoctoral research training opportunities.
• To facilitate outreach to the greater research and lay communities in the Vancouver lower mainland.
C2D2 researchers span multiple departments: Biological Sciences, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology, Chemistry, and Physics.
C2D2 researchers publish in top-level journal articles relevent to human health and disease.
C2D2 holds regular inter-departmental seminars and invites prestigious researchers from other institutions to present their research.
