Welcome to the Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy at LSUHSC-Shreveport 

Our  faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and staff, with their numerous activities and accomplishments, are the backbone of our academic and research programs.  Please scroll down the page to see a list of current accomplishments of the individuals who comprise the Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy!

Our faculty are involved in the education of Medical, Allied Health, and Graduate Students.   In our Ph.D. Program in Cellular Biology and Anatomy we currently have 8 students and in our M.S. Program we currently have 5 students.   

We have nationally and internationally recognized biomedical research programs in key topic areas such as cardiovascular diseases (stroke, atherosclerosis), epilepsy, and diabetic nephropathy.  Our faculty and students use state-of-the-art approaches in cell and molecular biology, high resolution microscopy, electrophysiology/patch clamping, and cellular metabolism studies.  

The Willed Body Program at LSU Health Sciences Center

We would like to thank the many generous members of the Ark-La-Tex Community who have chosen to make the ultimate gift as participants in our Willed Body Program.   Without your generosity we could not carry out our key mission of educating Medical, Allied Health, and Graduate students as well as Medical Residents and Fellows, in the Anatomical Sciences.  For more information about enrolling in our Willed Body Program please click on this link.
