Faculty include the following:
Dr. Phil Bayly: Mechanics and biophysics of cilia and flagella.
Dr. Anders Carlsson: Modeling of Actin Assembly and Force Generation.
Dr. John Cooper: Actin assembly and actin-based motility, including transendothelial migration.
Dr. Ram Dixit: Microtubules and their motors in plant cell biology.
Dr. Susan Dutcher: Assembly and function of cilia.
Dr. Michael Greenberg: Myosin-based contractile functions at the level of molecules, cells and tissues.
Dr. Silvia Jansen: Mechanisms of actin dynamics using single molecule approaches.
Dr. David Kast: Structural and functional basis of cytoskeleton-membrane interactions.
Dr. Greg Longmore: Migration of cancer cells.
Dr. Moe Mahjoub: Assembly and function of cilia in renal systems.
Dr. Celeste Morley: Immune-cell migration and motility.
Dr. Amit Pathak: Cellular mechanobiology.
Dr. Liliana Solnica-Krezel: Cell motility and adhesion during gastrulation.
