Pelin Candarlioglu (Postdoctoral researcher): I
aim to utilize molecular biophysical and cellular biology techniques to
investigate how circulating cancer stem cells (CTCs) control their cell
cycle and cell fate, in order to further understand how CTCs contribute
to metastasis.

HeLa cells stably expressing H2B-mCherry and alpha-tubulin-GFP were
filmed at 10x magnification through time lapse microscopy every 30
minutes for 5 days to determine cell cycle in 3 consecutive cell
divisions as a model for cancer cell cycle kinetics.
