Life Sciences: On the Cutting Edge
For decades, Carnegie scientists operating at all scales have developed deep expertise in understanding the mechanisms that govern life as we know it. Our developmental and plant biologists are experts in deploying the latest cellular and molecular research tools and techniques. Our ecologists are at the vanguard of knowledge on our planet’s dynamic systems and cycles and how climate change is impacting them. Moving forward, we aim to define the next frontier of life sciences research.
Expertise Ranging From the Molecular ...
We elucidate the cellular and molecular processes underpinning a variety of health concerns.
Both plants and animals require intimate, life-long, and co-evolved relationships with the microbial world to maintain their health.
We are revealing the molecular mechanisms underpinning a variety of symbiotic relationships.

How do individual species respond to stressful conditions, and can build community resilience to help ensure survival?
Climate change is putting rivers and coastal environments at risk of water quality impairments and endangering coral reefs.
It is crucial that we develop a deep understanding of the global mechanisms underpinning climate change.
