Hansen

The Konieczny laboratory is housed in the Hansen Life Sciences Research building which is home to the Purdue University Cancer Center. The Hansen building provides a pure research environment. There are no class rooms but only basic research laboratories from a variety of University Departments including Biological Sciences, Biochemistry, Medicinal Chemistry and Basic Medical Sciences.

Transgenic Mouse core facility

The TMCF is a state-of-the-art transgenic mouse core facility that is operated through the Purdue University Cancer Center to serve members of the Purdue University community

 
Research overview
The research in our laboratory is focused on defining the molecular mechanisms that regulate gene expression during the early and late stages of muscle and pancreatic development. These tissues provide particularly useful model systems to examine aspects of molecular, cellular, developmental and cancer biology since the cells can be propagated in culture, differentiation and cell cycle events are coupled and individual developmental processes are tightly regulated by several growth factors and oncogenes.
Graduate Positions

The Konieczny laboratory is a member of three different Graduate Student Programs on the Purdue campus. Each program offers an excellent opportunity to become trained in a variety of life science disciplines. For more information on any of these individual programs click on the links below.
