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.

The spring weather in Phoenix has been incredible. Had the chance to take the lab and friends out for dinner at Pemberton, which is a hip food truck venue just a few minutes walking from the lab. Great times. Need to start taking photos more often though, because I missed out on documenting several other of these fun social events we had!
