Professor, Radiation & Cellular Oncology
dbishop@uchicago.edu
Homologous recombination repairs DNA damage, facilitates DNA replication, and creates the physical connections between chromosomes needed for reductional chromosome...
Assistant Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
robertcarrillo@uchicago.edu
The long term goals of my lab are to understand the molecules and developmental programs that regulate neuronal development and wiring. To this end, we investigated the...
Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
rfehon@uchicago.edu
The Fehon laboratory studies the organization and function of signaling pathway components at the cell cortex, particularly relating to the Hippo growth control pathway...
Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
elfergus@uchicago.edu
The lab approaches questions of pattern formation and cell fate specification in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Our current interests are the mechanisms...
Associate Professor, Physics
gardel@uchicago.edu
My lab is dedicated to understanding how cell adhesion and migration is regulated by the physical behaviors and structure of the actin cytoskeleton, focal adhesions and...
Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
bsglick@uchicago.edu
Our goal is to understand the processes that generate compartments of the secretory pathway, including ER exit sites (ERES; also known as transitional ER or tER sites)...
Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
mglotzer@uchicago.edu
The Glotzer lab focuses on questions related to cell organization. How do cells coordinate the position of the contractile ring with the position of the spindle? By...
Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
jgreenbe@uchicago.edu
Research My broad interest is in how organisms adapt to a changing environment. My lab studies this in the context of pathogen-host interactions using the gram negative...
Assistant Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
heckscher@uchicago.edu
My lab studies the assembly and function of sensorimotor circuits. Sensorimotor circuits, such as those found in the human spinal cord, are required for all behavior....
Associate Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
shorne@uchicago.edu
My lab takes an integrative approach to studying organ morphogenesis. We are currently probing how cells migrate collectively & how basement membrane ECMs are...
