the barthel laboratory

Welcome to the Barthel Laboratory. Set to the backdrop of the stunning Sonoran Desert, we study the role of telomere dysfunction in brain cancer (glioma) development and evolution. We are a part of the Cancer and Cell Biology Division at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and the Department of Computational and Quantitative Medicine (DCQM) at the Beckman Research Institute (BRI) at City of Hope (COH).

We are actively looking for new graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and staff to join our team. Please click here for more information.

First day at the new lab today! Here are photos of my new office and lab space:

We are incredibly grateful to have been awarded a Forbeck COVID recovery grant to help recuperate funds and time lost due to the ongoing pandemic. See copied below the Spring edition of their newsletter. Thank you, Forbeck Foundation!
