Ongoing Projects

We study the molecular mechanisms that contribute to cellular compartmentalization with an emphasis on the biogenesis, organization and function of the nuclear envelope. A major focus of the lab is centered around nuclear pore complexes, massive protein assemblies that control the transport of molecules between the nucleus and cytoplasm. We are interested in mechanisms that govern their assembly and their overall number in disease and developmental contexts. For more information on current and future projects, click here.
