Excited to share our latest Preprint. Cdc42 reactivation at growth sites is regulated by cell-cycle-dependent removal of its GAP Rga4 in fission yeast. Julie Rich-Robinson, Afton Russell, Eleanor Mancini, Maitreyi E Das. bioRxiv 2020.08.14.238121; doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.08.14.238121

The labs bids farewell to Dr. Brian Hercyk as he leaves to start his postdoctoral position in the lab of Dr. Joel Boerckel at University of Pennsylvania. Good luck Brian! We will miss you.

Our lab was awarded a 5 year NIH-NIGMS R01 grant (1R01GM136847-01) to research “Cell-cycle-dependent cell polarity control.

Woot! Woot! Maitreyi received a 5 year NSF CAREER award (#1941367) to investigate “Spatiotemporal organization of cytokinetic events”.

Congratulations Dr. Brian Hercyk on successfully defending your thesis!
