Jay Gatlin

Department Head/Professor, Molecular Biology
University of Wyoming

Jay Gatlin is an engineer-turned-cell biologist who enjoys exploring fundamental questions about mechanical processes in cells, specifically those involving the microtubule cytoskeleton. He conducted his graduate work exploring growth cone pathfinding with Dr. Karl Pfenninger at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center and went on to a postdoc with Dr. Edward "Ted" Salmon at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill where he studied mitotic spindle assembly and function. Since 2010, he has continued exploring basic questions about the emergence of mitotic spindle morphology and control of its positioning at the University of Wyoming.
