Cell biology

Cell biology is the study of cell structure and function and revolves around the concept that the cell is the fundamental unit of life. All living things, including humans, animals, and plants, are composed of cells. Focusing on the cell provides a detailed understanding of the tissues, organs, organ systems, and organisms that cells make up. Cell biologists try to understand how cells work by examining the machinery inside them, studying how they communicate, and determining how they form larger structures.

Cell biology can be divided into many subfields, including the study of cell metabolism, cell communication, cell cycle, and cell composition.

Research in cell biology is related to other fields such as genetics, biochemistry, neurobiology, plant biology, molecular biology, microbiology, and immunology. Research on cells can lead to improved diagnosis, treatment, and cures for diseases.

Careers for cell biologists include: research scientist; staff scientist; imaging specialist; researcher in biotechnology, medical technology, or pharmacology; teaching at the high school, college, or university level; science communication; science policy; and science diplomacy.
