Welcome to the Glavy Lab!
We study Nuclear Pore Complexes (NPCs) and proteins associated in DNA damage response pathways. Our work utilizes a variety of cell lines to explore these topics and we also implement a broad range of techniques, including confocal microscopy, western blotting, ultracentrifugation, and live cell imaging.
Our lab is located in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Texas at Tyler. Tyler is a medium-sized town nestled in the piney woods of east Texas, approximately an hour and a half east of Dallas. Tyler is known as the Rose Capital of America and produces beautiful roses and azaleas in the spring. It's also a great place to conduct research!
If you are interested in learning more about our lab or want to become part of the team, please contact Joe Glavy.
