We study several aspects of cell growth and division such as how macromolecule biosynthesis is coordinated with cell division and how chromosome segregation is controlled during mitosis and meiosis. We also investigate how the nucleus and mitochondria communicate with each other.
We not only study basic biological processes but also strive to understand how defects in these basic biological processes lead to disease.
