Research Focus

The research in my laboratory is directed toward an increase ion our understanding of the molecular mechanisms ensuring accurate chromosome segregation and other chromosome behaviors. These issues are of considerable potential importance to human health because mistakes in chromosome segregation are implicated in the genesis of many inherited syndromes and of cancer. Our analysis of these mutants should continue to uncover new genes that play important conserved roles in apportioning chromosomes and other chromosomal behaviors during cell division, but that could not be found in other ways.
