News and Openings


We have openings for highly motivated graduate students and postdocs, with interest and/or background in receptor signaling, single molecule imaging and/or computational image analysis.

Interested postdocs should send an email with their CV and research statement, succinctly describing their research interests and past accomplishments, to

Interested students should apply to the UT Southwestern graduate school, but can also send an email with their CV and research statement to for any inquiries.


November 2016: Tony's work got published, in the Nov 15 issue of Journal of Cell Science. Congratulations Tony!

          Using quantitative high- and super-resolution imaging, in collaboration with the Touret lab at U. of Alberta Edmonton, we found that the receptor CD36 exists in nanoclusters on the cell surface enriched with the downstream effector Fyn, thus facilitating intracellular signaling upon ligand binding.

          The colocalization software that Tony developed for this paper can be downloaded from our SOFTWARE page.

July 2016: Khuloud received a Maximizing Investigators' Research Award (MIRA) grant from the NIH/NIGMS. We are very excited!

June 2016: Farewell Magda - we will miss you! Enjoy your US tour and good luck in your next steps.

June 2016: Kevin Nguyen, an incoming MSTP student, started his rotation in the lab.

June 2016: Welcome back Lauren. We look forward to another lively and productive summer internship before you head off to U Penn for your undergraduate studies.

June 2016: A new postdoc, Aparajita Dasgupta, joined the lab. See People page for more information.

May 2016: Our manuscript linking single-molecule integrin dynamics to cell edge protrusion activity got published in MBoC. And it made it to the journal cover (photo to left)!

May 2016: A new postdoc, Luciana De Oliveira, joined the lab. See People page for more information.
