Public Health Interests
We study mechanisms that drive organelle structure, identity, and dynamics. Specific areas of interest include how lipid metabolism is coupled to endoplasmic reticulum and nuclear envelope structure, the role of nuclear lamins in nuclear dynamics during cell division and development, and defining functions for inner nuclear membrane proteins in the organization of single cells and complex tissues.
Specialized Terms: organelle structure, lipid synthesis, nuclear envelope, lamins, high resolution microscopy, cellular dynamics, C elegans
