Overview

This includes their physiological properties such as their structure, their interaction with the extra-cellular environment and other cells, their life cycle, division and function, and eventual death. This is done both on a microscopic and molecular level.

Cell biology researches both single-celled organisms such as bacteria, and specialised cells in organisms, such as humans and plants. 

Microscopy and molecular approaches are used to understand how organisms develop, how they respond to their environment and how the diseased state differs from the healthy state. Knowledge of cell biology is vital to our understanding of disease and infection and in developing new methods to combat these.
