Molecular mechanisms of cell division

Our lab studies cytokinesis, the final step of cell division that leads to the physical separation of daughter cells. Our aim is to discover new molecular mechanisms involved in cytokinetic abscission in eukaryotic cells and to uncover unexpected parallels between cell division and viral budding. We are particularly interested in understanding the membrane and cytoskeletal remodeling steps that are essential for these two topologically related processes.
