Current Research and Scholarly Interests
I am interested in studying centrosomes, cilia, and cell cycle regulators in differentiated cells, specifically the relationship between centrosome duplication and DNA replication.
Mitosis sans Mitosis: The Mitotic Oscillator in Differentiation
2017; 43 (4): 385–86
Differentiation and proliferation are usually considered to be antagonistic partners in development. However, in a recent issue of Science, Al Jord et al. (2017) show that key regulators of the mitotic cycle are redeployed in differentiating multiciliated cells to promote ciliogenesis without mitotic progression.
