What’s in a Name

The George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences has renamed the Department of Anatomy and Regenerative Biology. It is now the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology.

“Considering the current teaching and research activities of the department, particularly with newly recruited faculty members, this new name better represents our collective expertise,” said Sally A. Moody, PhD, chair and professor in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology.

The department is home to some of the GW’s leading educators. As a traditional anatomy department, it directs its educational efforts toward undergraduate and graduate courses in gross anatomy, microscopic anatomy, embryology, and neuroanatomy for medical, health sciences, physical therapy, and basic science students. All faculty engaged in these courses teach aspects of the cell biology of human tissues.
