Investigating Microtubule Regulation during Cell Proliferation, Migration and Morphogenesis
QI Robert Zhong
The microtubule cytoskeleton is an essential scaffold that functions in organizing the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells. The project employs a wide variety of techniques of biochemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology to characterize newly identified microtubule-associated proteins and to investigate their functions in microtubule regulation during cell proliferation, migration and morphogenesis.
