Apart from routine maintenance of the lab, I mainly work on

-spindle positioning (S.Kotak) (11-12)

-timing of mitotic entry in C. elegans embryos (06-11; V. Hamel)

My focus is on dissecting the molecular architecture of centrioles to thoroughly understand their assembly mechanism and function. I use a combination of biophysical, cell and structural biology tools to understand the role of centriolar proteins in the centriole formation.

I am trying to  uncover a functional relevance of unequal volumes between sister cells arising from some asymmetric cell divisions such as the first division of the C. elegans zygote. Are different cell volumes of progenitor cells important for the embryonic development of C. elegans? If cell size is altered what are the consequences?
