      Collapse Overview
      The human body is assembled from modular parts with sizes ranging from organs to atoms. These parts are also organized hierarchically, each constructed from ever-smaller building blocks that contribute to the higher order functional properties of our bodies.

      In the Gartner lab, we are working to organize the body’s building blocks into defined structures spanning the subcellular to tissue length scales. Through our efforts, we hope to gain a deeper understanding of fundamental biological processes relating to the establishment of tissue structure and its breakdown during disease.
