It is with great sadness that we share the news of Dr. Alberts’ passing. Art was a passionate, deeply inquisitive soul who was dedicated to the purity of science and to mentoring the next generation of scientists—he will be immeasurably missed. Please direct questions about his scientific projects
to Dr. Bart Williams.

Cell Structure and Signal Integration

Alberts Laboratory
The Alberts Laboratory studies the architecture of individual cells as they move, grow, divide, and reprogram during development, neoplasia, and in responses to injury, infection, and age. We seek to understand how cell structure defects contribute to disease acquisition and progression. The goal is to use what we learn to devise ways to repair, reinforce, or remodel cell structure for therapeutic benefit.
