Cell biology

Outline

It is a breathtaking experience to watch a cell dividing under a microscope. Precisely controlled cell division is an essential process of heredity, development and homeostasis. However, it is not known how a cell equally distributes its contents, or generates force to divide itself. Using cutting-edge microscopes and cellular biological techniques, we are trying to elucidate structure and function of cellular machineries that govern elaborate regulation of cell division.
