SOME FUTURE MEETINGS:




Welcome to the Gilroy Lab

We are interested in how plants sense and respond to their environment and how these signals regulate plant development. The research emphasis of the lab is to try and understand these processes at the cellular level. We combine advanced microscopy approaches such as confocal microscopy with biochemistry and molecular biology to address a wide range of biological questions:
  • How do plants sense and respond to abiotic stresses?
  • How do roots and shoots sense and respond to gravity and touch stimuli?
  • How do plants regulate growth?
  • How do tip growing cells such as pollen tubes and root hairs regulate their growth?

Work in the Gilroy lab is funded by NSF and NASA under grants: IOS-1121380; MCB-1329723; NNX12AK79G and NNX13AM50G
