Chris is interested in how the surface area to volume ratio of the cell controls mitotic spindle architecture.
Coral is interested in how chromosome architecture is regulated throughout the cell cycle and during development.
Ambika works on cytoskeletal crosstalk during mitosis.
Clotilde did her PhD on cell size homeostasis in cultured animal cells. She is now investigating the consequences of ploidy on cell size and growth in Xenopus embryos.
Mina is a joint postdoc between the Heald and Bustamante labs working at the interface of in vitro cell biology and single-molecule biophysics.
Kelly is broadly interested in mechanisms of cell division and size control in amphibians, most recently using the small pipid Hymenochirus boettgeri.
Maiko studies mitosis and size scaling in Xenopus borealis using hybrid embryos and in vitro approaches.
Lupe is interested in the molecular basis of spindle morphology among different species and in human cancers.
Elizabeth is investigating the salamander as an extreme case of both genome and cellular size.
