Project Title:
Investigation of novel mechanisms underlying microtubule organization
Supervisor:QI Robert Zhong
Project Description:The temporal and spatial control of microtubule organization requires molecular assemblies that initiate microtubule growth and mediate the anchoring of microtubules at microtubule-organizing centers, such as centrosomes. This project focuses on understanding the nature and assembly dynamics of the protein assemblies on centrosomes and the control mechanisms of microtubule growth and array organization. As the project employs a multidisciplinary approach, the students will be introduced to advanced technologies in modern life sciences.
