On Saturday, 9/10/2016, TWU-Biology supported the AHA at the Denton Heart Walk after raising $725 in donations by offering two delicious, homemade lunches (pasta and Indian), mango lassi, brownies, cookies, and truffles. My lab all participated in the fundraising and the walk (my role was team leader). We enjoyed supporting the AHA’s research and education, and look forward to doing it again next year. Here’s hoping it doesn’t rain again at next year’s walk!




Welcome to the Gumienny Lab’s home page!


Hello and welcome!  You are visiting the Gumienny Lab’s website.  We study Transforming Growth Factor-β (TGF-β) signaling in the model organism C. elegans.  Our lab uses genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, and microscopy to understand how TGF-β signaling is regulated in the context of the whole organism.  Check the links in the sidebar to the right to learn more about us and what we do.   You can also visit Dr. Gumienny’s faculty page or our Pubmed page if you want to learn more about our work.

Thanks for stopping by!
