dbishop@uchicago.edu
Homologous recombination repairs DNA damage, facilitates DNA replication, and creates the physical connections between chromosomes needed for reductional chromosome...
Assistant Professor,
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,
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,
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,
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,
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,
mglotzer@uchicago.edu
We study the cellular dynamics and signaling during cytokinesis and cell polarization using a combination of genetics, cell biology, imaging and optogenetics.
Professor,
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,
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,
shorne@uchicago.edu
My lab takes an integrative approach to studying organ morphogenesis in Drosophila. We are currently probing how cells migrate collectively & how basement membrane...
