During asymmetric cell division, cells as diverse as stem cells and budding yeast make usage of their polarity to segregate cell fate determinants differentially between the two daughter cells. Beyond its medical and developmental importance, our laboratory study this process as a paradigm to study how cells control their spatio-temporal organization and coordinate complex architectural processes with each other.
Current research projects:
1. Spindle positioning during asymmetric cell divisions
2. Co-ordination of the cytokinetic machinery with spindle function
3. Diffusion barriers and the control of aging
