Research Facilities

Student conducting research in a laboratory

Our CBP faculty research programs cover a broad swatch of topics (e.g. calcium signaling, glycobiology, metabolic engineering, DNA repair, RNA modification, translation, photoreception, photosynthesis, cancer therapeutics, drug metabolics, metabolomics, molecular imaging and genome editing) using an extensive range of approaches (e.g. genetics, genomics, x-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, EPR computational modeling, enzymology and organic synthesis).

At UC Davis, we have a strong multidisciplinary research infrastructure that ensures the sciences will continue to expand in the years ahead.
