Research Description
Cells within a human body are designed to perform specialized physiological functions. Cell architecture depends on microtubules (MTs), 25-nm self-assembling polymers that serve as highways for intracellular transport. During cell division, MTs drive chromosome segregation. In interphase cells, MTs serve to translocate molecules, secretory vesicles, and organelles to define cell shape and polarity. Each cell type requires a distinct MT organization. We aim to understand molecular and spatial differences between MT networks in specific cells types, and how these differences promote physiological functions of these cells.

Our current research is built along three specific directions:

(I) the role of specific MT-binding proteins in defining MT network architecture and heterogeneity
(II) the regulation of MT nucleation sites and their roles in MT network design
(III) how the MT network positions organelles and organizes secretory trafficking.

Our favorite models include motile mesenchymal cells and insulin-secreting pancreatic beta cells.
As tools, we use a combination of cutting edge high- and super-resolution microscopy techniques supported by molecular/biochemical approaches and mathematical modeling.
