Welcome to the website for the laboratory of Gary Luker, M.D.

The Luker Lab is located in the Biomedical Sciences Research Building at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Our research brings together aspects of biology, medicine, and engineering to examine chemokine receptor signaling and function.

Our laboratory focuses on functions of these receptors in primary and metastatic cancer. To investigate chemokine-chemokine receptor signaling in intact cells and living animals, we develop novel molecular imaging reporters and technologies to quantify dynamics of receptor signaling networks in real time. These technologies also allow us to measure molecular targeting of therapeutic agents in cell-based assays and living mice.
