Research Synopsis

In the Mao laboraotry, I utilise the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster to study cell division within highly polarised epithelial tissues. I use cutting-edge confocal microscopy to observe the process of interkinetic nuclear migration in three dimentions and decipher essential molecules involved by taking advantage of the genetic tools developed for the fruit fly.
