Gilly Lab Hopkins Marine Station

The Gilly Lab

Research in the Gilly lab, lead by Prof. Bill Gilly, currently centers on the biology and ecology of Humboldt squid, Dosidicus gigas. We use a variety of tools to explore locomotion, communication/camouflage, trophic dynamics, life history and influence in social systems (fisheries).

The Gilly lab also has a rich history in Biophysics, exploring celluar regulation of voltage-gated Na and K channels in ionotropic glutamate receports cloned from the squid nervous system.

Have more questions?

We are always looking for self-motivated volunteers and interns looking to get their hands wet.

Past interns and volunteers have gone on to join the lab as graduate students and as technicians.



Contact Elan Portner for more information.

Have you seen a squid recently?
