Rebecca Heald, PhD

POSTDOCS

Andy Lane, PhD

Andy is studying changes in chromosome biology throughout Xenopus embryonic development using CRISPR imaging libraries.

andylane@berkeley.edu

Chris Brownlee, PhD

Chris is interested in how the surface area to volume ratio of the cell controls mitotic spindle architecture.

brownlee@berkeley.edu

Lauren Slevin, PhD

Lauren is interested in how spindle assembly factors modulate microtubule nucleation activity and spindle morphology.

slevin@berkeley.edu

Magdalena Strzelecka, PhD

Magda is interested in the function of mitotically relevant noncoding RNAs and role of the spliceosome in mitotic spindle assembly.

strzelecka@berkeley.edu

Romain Gibeaux, PhD

Romain uses Xenopus hybrids to investigate the consequence of hybridization on fundamental biological mechanisms including size scaling and mitosis.

Xiao Zhou, PhD

Xiao will be joining the lab in June 2015

GRADUATE STUDENTS

Andrew Grenfell

Andrew is interested in the function of mitotically relevant noncoding RNAs. He is also developing automated approaches to analyze the Xenopus egg extract spindle.
