Professor of Cell Biology
HHMI Investigator

Our laboratory works on cell biology topics in two areas: cytoskeletal dynamics and the control of genome stability. Our approaches include genetics, functional genomics, biochemistry and live cell imaging. Ongoing projects use both yeast and animal cell systems.
