The Lowery Lab Biology Department at Boston College
Accurate axon guidance is absolutely essential
to the development and function of the nervous
system, and abnormalities in neural connectivity
are associated with a multitude of neuro-
The long-term goal of our lab is to understand
the cell biological mechanisms by which the
embryonic growth cone coordinates multiple
sources of guidance information in order to
steer in the right direction.
Our research utilizes high-resolution live imaging
and computational analysis of cytoskeletal
behavior in cultured Xenopus laevis neurons
to address this goal.
Welcome to the Lowery Lab website! The lab in Higgins 430 "officially" opened in January 2014, when Laura Anne began her position as an Assistant Professor here at BC. We currently have a busy and enthusiastic crew here as we get our research off the ground.
February 25, 2015: Laura Anne presents a talk at Penn State University for the Huck Institute Neuroscience Seminar series. Thanks to host, Melissa Rolls, for a great visit!
February 23, 2015: The lab welcomes our new PhD student, Garrett Cammarata!
Janaury 21, 2015: The lab welcomes new undergrad sophomore, Jackson Bowers!
January 20, 2015: The lab welcomes Gary McDowell, post-doctoral researcher from the Levin Lab at Tufts University, as a visiting scholar in the Lowery Lab!
January 8, 2015: The lab is currently accepting applications for 1-2 undergrad part-time volunteer positions for the spring semester. At this time we are requesting applications from interested freshmen and sophomores only. Applications are due by January 16th and instructions for submitting can be found here.
January 7, 2015: Congratulations to undergraduate Matt Evans for acceptance into medical school at Oxford University!
January 5, 2015: The lab welcomes Biology graduate rotation student, Sean Ruvolo!
January - May 2015: Dr. Lowery teaches the graduate-level course, "Advanced Cell Biology".
December 12, 2014: Congratulations to Belinda for acceptance into medical school at St. George's University!
December 8, 2014: Laura Anne presents an ePoster talk and Beth and Burcu both present posters at the American Society for Cell Biology meeting in Philadelphia.
