Key Research Interests and Expertise
Our research is concerned with the cytoskeleton in health and disease with a main focus on microtubule and centrosome reorganization during epithelial differentiation. The aims are to determine the mechanisms and molecular bases for the generation and maintenance of non-centrosomal apico-basal microtubules arrays in polarised epithelial cells. The studies address basic cell biological problems as well as issues of importance for advancing our understanding of cancer. Lab.

Current Research Projects
- Microtubule and centrosomal organisation in normal and cancer cells
- Role of +TIP in the formation of apico-basal arrays in polarised epithelial cells
- Microtubule associated protein in cell migration and epithelial remodelling
Life in our research group
Our group is located in a well equipped research lab within the BMRC in the School of Biological Sciences. We use a combination of cell, tissue and organoid model systems to study microtubule and centrosomal organisation during epithelial polarisation in normal and cancer cells. GFP- and RNAi-technology and widefield fluorescence, confocal, multiphoton and electron microscopy are being used for live and fixed cell analyses (see http://www.uea.ac.uk/bio/biobmi/ for our Bio-imaging facility). We have weekly lab meetings and regularly attend international conferences on the centrosome and the cytoskeleton.
