Welcome to the Gladfelter Lab

The Gladfelter lab is interested in how cells are organized in time and space.  We study how cytoplasm is spatially patterned and how cells sense their own shape.  We also investigate how timing in the cell division cycle can be highly variable yet still accurate. For our work, we combine quantitative live cell microscopy and computational, genetic and biochemical approaches in fungal and mammalian cells.
