Merz Laboratory

science in seattle

Our group is part of the Departments of Biochemistry, and Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Washington in Seattle. The UW provides one of the best research environments in the world and receives more federal research funding than any other U.S. public university.

In addition to groups at UW, we also interact with laboratories at the affiliated Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Institute for Systems Biology, and Seattle Biomedical Research Institute.
