Welcome to the Hawley Lab

The Hawley Lab is broadly interested in the genetic and molecular mechanisms that enable chromosomes to pair, recombine, and segregate during female meiosis.  We perform our studies in fruit flies, a robust model organism that allows us to probe deep into the processes that govern meiotic chromosome behavior, many of which are highly conserved and present in humans. Combined with the world-class facilities available at the Stowers Institute, we are learning more about the intricacies of female meiosis than ever before!
