Principal Investigator, Ehrhardt Laboratory, Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford, CA
We investigate plant cell development and morphogenesis, utilizing live cell imaging techniques to visualize the organization and dynamic behaviors of molecules and organelles. Problems of special interest include how cells generate assymetries and specific shapes. Currently we are investigating how the cortical microtubule cytoskeleton acquires organization and how this organization in turn functions to guide patterns of cell growth and division.
