My lab works on the mechanisms underlying the development and maintenance of neuronal polarity. We initially focused on the involvement of microtubules in axon-dendrite formation, and more recently on kinesin-like proteins, actin regulatory proteins and factors (GEFs and GAPs) modulating the activity of small Rho-GTPases. We use a variety of cell biological techniques including live-cell imaging and super-resolution microscopy.
