Mechanisms Controlling Stable Kinetochore-Microtubule interactions during mitosis

"Our major research interest is molecular mechanisms that govern precise chromosome segregation. Aneuploidy is one of the hallmarks in cancer cells. It is known to promote the development of cancer. A major cause of aneuploidy is derived from chromosome mis-segregation in mitosis. Therefore, a better understanding of the mechanisms of proper chromosome segregation will help decipher the underlying causes of cancer and provide theoretical bases for clinical applications. Several aspects play an essential role in chromosome segregation: spindle poles, kinetochore-microtubule interaction, spindle checkpoint and cohesion. Our current research focuses on the regulation of kinetochore-microtubule interaction and cohesion."
