Molecular Biologist and Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Chris Barton has led groups of students across Belmont’s campus through extensive research projects related to the behavior of cancer cells. Interested in identifying drugs that could stop the growth of these cells, Barton has been working within cancer molecular biology for the majority of his career and says he’s happy to carry a version of that work with him to Belmont.Thanks to a semi-sterile tissue culture facility in the Janet Ayers Academic Center, students can engage with research in a hands-on way. Currently, student groups from Barton’s Cell Biology class are working to grow cancer cells that have been isolated from tumors in plastic dishes.
