01-Feb-2022: Gheorghe has received the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award - our lab's first federal grant! It supports early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. This grant will support our lab's efforts to dissect the mysterious process or replication initiation in vertebrates. This project will also provide biotechnology training opportunities for high school teachers and students. Read More »
We are really delighted to welcome Emma Hammock - our new admin. Read More »
The Chistol lab is celebrating another exciting milestone! Following our successful move to the CCSR building, we finished setting up our new microscope room. Read More »
Our lab is using real-time single-molecule imaging to (i) study how eukaryotes replicate/repair their DNA; (ii) dissect molecular mechanisms involved in maintaining large/complex genomes; and (iii) understand how multi-subunit molecular machines like the replisome are regulated.
We are looking for curious and highly-motivated undergrads, graduate students, and postdocs to join our team. Since our lab operates at the intersection of biology, chemistry, and physics - we welcome people with very diverse backgrounds, mindsets, skills, experience, and training .
If you find our work exciting we encourage you to reach out by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you are on campus you are always welcome to drop by the lab to chat.
