The Gladfelter lab is a group of curious scientists combining microscopes and math to study how cells are organized in time and space. We examine how cytoplasm is spatially patterned and how cells sense their own shape. For our work, we apply computational, genetic and biochemical approaches in fungi and mammalian placenta.

Our lab embraces an array of backgrounds, lived experiences, perspectives and skills to create a safe and intellectually vibrant space for discovery. We welcome you to learn about our lab members and community.
