Faculty and Trainers

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....
Professor, BSD Academic Admin
rkh@uchicago.edu
The zebrafish, Danio rerio, is a relatively simple vertebrate whose potential as a model system for developmental studies is only recently being realized. Embryos are...
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...
Associate Professor, Ben May Department
aimamoto@uchicago.edu
We are interested in elucidating mechanisms by which a mutation or combination of mutations affect broader network within and between cells during development. Our...
Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
drkovar@uchicago.edu
Cells simultaneously assemble and maintain different actin cytoskeleton networks of distinct organizations and dynamics for fundamental processes such as polarization,...
Assistant Professor, Neurobiology
pkratsios@uchicago.edu
My lab uses the specific strengths of two model systems (C.elegans and mice) to reveal the gene regulatory mechanisms that control motor neuron development and function...
Professor, Human Genetics
blahn@bsd.uchicago.edu
Our lab studies the mechanism of cell fate restriction. The approaches we take fall at the interface of several disciplines, including developmental biology, stem cell...
Associate Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
jmalamy@bsd.uchicago.edu
My lab works in two model systems: the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and the emerging model Cnidarian Clytia hemisphaerica. In Arabidopsis, we are studying long...
Currently not accepting students.
Associate Professor, Pediatrics-Cardiology
imoskowitz@peds.bsd.uchicago.edu
The Moskowitz laboratory is devoted to the genetic, genomic and molecular study of gene regulatory networks. A single overarching theme governs work in the Moskowitz...
Associate Professor, Mol Gen/Cell Bio
emunro@uchicago.edu
We study how embryos integrate biochemical signaling, cytoskeletal dynamics and cell mechanics to orchestrate complex cell and tissue behaviors. We combine live imaging...
