The lab’s goal is to understand the interplay of membrane-bound organelles, cytoskeletal structure, and metabolism as it relates to the organization and function of neurons, and the cells they interact with. On a small scale, we are interested in mapping out the spatial organization, stoichiometry, and dynamics of proteins as they interact with each other and with different parts of the cell. On a larger scale, we are trying to decipher how complex cellular behaviors arise, including cell crawling, polarization, cell-cell contact, cytokinesis, cell fate determination, viral budding, and intercellular transfer.

To study these problems, we rely heavily on microscopy – including super-resolution imaging techniques and cutting edge fluorescence-based technologies – as well as biochemistry, in vitro reconstitution, and mathematical modeling.
