Students who have been accepted into the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center are invited to rotate through the CRI. Learn more about the admission guidelines and apply at the graduate school.

Agathocleous Lab

Researchers in the Agathocleous lab are studying how metabolites impact the stem cells genome and how the metabolism of cancer cells, and normal stem cells that give rise to cancers, compare. 

DeBerardinis Lab

The DeBerardinis lab is interested in the role of altered metabolic states in human diseases, particularly pediatric inborn errors of metabolism and cancer.

Hoxhaj Lab

The Hoxhaj lab is interested in studying the molecular mechanisms that control cellular metabolism, particularly in cancer.   

McBrayer Lab

The McBrayer Lab seeks to discover metabolic mechanisms that promote brain tumor development and develop strategies to exploit altered metabolism for cancer therapy.

Mishra Lab

 Research in the Mishra lab is focused on mapping how the mitochondria are embedded into normal cellular function.    

Morrison Lab

The Morrison Lab studies mechanisms that regulate stem cell function in adult tissues and the ways in which those mechanisms get hijacked by cancer cells to enable tumor formation.

Xu Lab

The Xu lab is focuses on blood cell development and how abnormalities can cause cancers such as childhood leukemia.  

Zhu Lab

The Zhu laboratory is interested in understanding the relationship between injury, regeneration, and cancer.
