Understanding how leaves develop

Plants utilize "boundaries" of genes expression to help decide where to position and how to shape leaves. This project will investigate how these boundaries control plant developmen more...

Studies in Cell-Projection Pumping

Cell-projection pumping (CPP) is a mechanism we have recently discovered whereby cells pump cytoplasm between each other. We have discovered this in context of cancer, where there i more...

Sorting proinsulin into secretory vesicles

Reduction in glucose-stimulated mature insulin secretion and increased constitutive and regulated secretion of proinsulin are characteristics of β-cell failure. This may be due more...

The DNA replication stress response

Genome integrity in human cells is maintained through the coordinated functions of the DNA damage response. We study these processes with particular interest in the pathways that re more...

The anti-apoptotic activity of serum albumin for endothelial cells

Earlier work in my laboratory, established that serum albumin contains a cryptic protein domain that is exposed through transient intra-molecular protein movement, to bind a G-prote more...
