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.

Have you seen a squid recently?
Let us know. We are always excited to hear about when and where squid are popping up.

About Us

dosidicus squid

Research in the Gilly lab, led 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 cellular regulation of voltage-gated Na+ and K+ channels in ionotropic glutamate receptors cloned from the squid nervous system.
