Welcome to the Department of Cell Biology & Anatomy

The Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy has a history of strong commitment to the various missions of the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans– research, education and service. The department is actively involved in the teaching of many courses in the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Allied Health, Nursing and Graduate Studies. As part of its distinguished history in teaching excellence, the department has been given the “Best Preclinical Department” award by the graduating classes of the medical school for the past 21 years. The department continues to develop new instructional technologies in the areas of computer-aided instruction which better serve the educational interests of our students.

The research programs of the department have greatly expanded over the past several years through the hiring of faculty who have expertise in the areas of cell and molecular biology, developmental biology, and neurobiology. The department also has faculty who are jointly appointed in some of the Centers of Excellence such as Neuroscience and Molecular and Human Genetics. Within the department are several core equipment research facilities which support investigators within the department and the rest of the LSUHSC. Some of the current research programs among others within the department are: studies of receptor, channel, and membrane properties of neurons; cellular and behavioral function of the visual system; brain development and plasticity; developmental biology; and computer imaging technology used to study human embryonic development.

The faculty within the Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy take very seriously their responsibilities to assist in the training of the educators, scientists, and health care providers who will be needed to satisfy the current and future needs in this country as well as other countries throughout the world.

Sincerely,

Sam G. McClugage, PhD
Professor and Head
Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy
