The focus of our lab is understand how cellular cargos are delivered to the right place at the right time. Intracellular transport is a critical feature of cell physiology, and is largely mediated by a small group of molecular machines called motor proteins. We pay particularly close attention to one such molecule called dynein, and how this motor is regulated to perform its myriad functions during cell division.
