A clue to cell cleavage

Actin and microtubule cytoskeletons are coordinated during cytokinesis – the process that separates one cell into two and is linked to events underlying cancer.

Motor protein revs up cell division

A motor protein that helps drive cell division may be a promising new target for cancer therapeutics.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society honors Ohi’s research

Puck Ohi, Ph.D., assistant professor of Cell and Developmental Biology, has received the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society SCHOLAR award for his research on the role of enzymes that affect cell division, which has implications for treating cancer and blood disorders like leukemia and lymphoma.
