PLEASE NOTE: The Kumar Lab is looking for postdocs for an active R01 on actomyosin mechanobiology. Experience with cell biology and confocal/multiphoton imaging is required. Qualified applicants should submit a CV and letter of interest through our website: http://kumarlab.berkeley.edu/positions .
Welcome to the Kumar Laboratory in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley!
Our research team seeks to understand and control biophysical communication between cells and their surroundings. In addition to investigating fundamental aspects of this problem, we are especially interested in understanding the role played by cellular mechanobiological signaling in tumor and stem cell biology in the central nervous system.
Please check our research page for more details on our lab’s projects!
