We are interested in the molecular mechanisms that regulate mitotic spindle organization and orientation in mammalian system. We are also interested in exploring the role of oriented cell division during epithelial morphogenesis and carcinogenesis.
We are interested in how polarity proteins are involved in cell-cell contact formation, cell polarization, cell-cell internalization and epithelial morphogenesis.
We are interested in the molecular mechanisms underlying cell-cycle-regulated genome organization, focusing on the role of nuclear scaffold proteins.
We are interested in molecular mechanisms underlying asymmetric cell division of stem cells. We are also interested in how polarity proteins are involved in stem cell fate determination.
