Welcome to the Engelke lab!

The Cellular Organization Lab

Image acquired on ISU’s Leica SP8 confocal microscope during USRF 2021 with support from Dr. Edwards

We are a team of scientists who are fascinated by the question of how life functions ― how inanimate molecules form complex, yet highly-organized and dynamic structures that display all of the properties that we attribute to life. To satisfy this curiosity, we ask fundamental questions about molecular-level dynamic processes in cells. The overarching goal of the lab is to decipher how microtubules and molecular motor proteins function and how they are regulated to achieve cellular organization and homeostasis.
