Pan Lab

The Pan laboratory uses Drosophila and mice as model systems to investigate size-control mechanisms in normal development and their pathological roles in cancer.

  • Duojia (DJ) Pan, Ph.D.
Genetics, Development and Disease

Parikh Lab

Our research is focused on mechanisms underlying acute kidney injury and sepsis.  Our laboratory has implicated mitochondrial maintenance via PGC1alpha and NAD+ as a novel pathway for resilience against acute physiological stressors.

Park Lab

Welcome to the PARK Lab.

Our lab focuses on:

  1. Development of novel noninvasive imaging methods for in vivo metabolism and function
  2. Identification of characteristics in metabolic diseases
  3. Clinical translations of the metabolic imaging methods

Parker Lab

We study how cells duplicate their genomic material and how this process goes awry in disease.

  • Matthew Parker

Parkland Outcomes after Prematurity Study (POPS)

The Parkland Outcomes after Prematurity Study research group focuses on the short- and long-term effects of preterm birth, to improve lifelong health outcomes for current and future patients.

Pascual Lab

Our laboratory attracts scientists and collaborators with diverse backgrounds that range from mathematics to genetics, electrophysiology, brain functional imaging, or neuroscience, but with the common ability and shared vision to work on problems relevant to the human nervous and muscular systems and, more importantly, to the individuals afflicted by their diseases.

  • Juan Pascual, M.D., Ph.D.

Pawlowski Lab

Dr. Pawlowski's laboratory studies how mutant genes affect the structure of the Organ of Corti, and searches for treatments against otitis media and infection of cochlear implants.

  • Karen Pawlowski, Ph.D.

Pediatric Cardiac MR Imaging Lab

Our lab focuses on the use of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in pediatric and congenital heart disease.

  • Mohammad Tarique Hussain, M.D., Ph.D.
Biomedical Engineering

Pedrosa Lab

The mission of the Pedrosa Lab is to develop and implement new imaging methods that facilitate better morphologic and pathophysiologic characterization of diseases in the body for improved patient outcomes

Pfeiffer (Brad) Lab

The Pfeiffer Lab is interested in how the brain forms neural representations of experience, how those representations are consolidated into long-term memory, and how those representations can be later recalled to inform behavior.

  • Brad Pfeiffer, Ph.D.

Pfeiffer (Julie) Lab

Our lab uses tractable model viruses to learn about niche-specific factors that influence viral infection and evolution.

  • Julie Pfeiffer, Ph.D.
Molecular Microbiology

Phillips Lab

We are developing inhibitors of pyrimidine biosynthesis and polyamine biosynthesis to treat malaria and African sleeping sickness. We study polyamine and nucleotide metabolism in African trypanosomes to learn about novel metabolism and regulation.

Phlebotomy Services

Welcome to the Phlebotomy Services/CTSA Core in the Eugene McDermott Center for Human Growth and Development.

  • Christine Garcia, M.D., Ph.D.

Poojary Lab

The goal of our research is to identify key immune checkpoints of gastrointestinal disorders that could be targeted for therapeutic intervention and drug development.

Pool Lab

The Pool Lab studies neural circuits that provide a sense of purpose and direction to animal behavior and develops targeted gene therapies to re-engineer their function.

  • Allan-Hermann Pool, PhD

Pouratian Lab

Pouratian Lab's primary mission is to explore basic human neuroscientific principles as well as identify brain mapping biomarkers of disease that can drive innovative approaches to restore function to patients with neurological and psychiatric diseases.

  • Nader Pouratian, M.D., Ph.D.
Human neuroscience

Prinz Lab

Dr. Prinz's research is focused on the tiny organelles within cells that do the cell’s work, much like the organs in a human body. He is best known for studies into the exchange of fats (also called lipids) between organelles at so-called membrane contact sites where organelles come in close contact within a cell. 

  • William Prinz, Ph.D.

Psychoneuroendocrine Research Program

The Psychoneuroendocrine Research Program (PNE) at UT Southwestern Medical Center focuses on two different areas of research: substance abuse, particularly dual diagnoses (e.g., depression or bipolar disorder); and the effects of corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone) on mood and memory.
