Research

The ability to accurately segregate genetic material into daughter cells is essential for the survival of an organism. Errors in this process can result in developmental defects and diseases in humans. We take a multidisciplinary approach to determine the molecular and physical basis for how, during cell division, exactly one copy of our genome is delivered to each daughter cell.
