Research Focus - Assembly Mechanisms and Function of Eukaryotic Cilia

  • Understanding the function of intraflagellar transport proteins in ciliary assembly and ciliary signaling
  • Dissecting the function of cilia in mammalian development and disease
  • Uncovering the role of intraflagellar transport proteins in Hedgehog signaling
  • Elucidating the molecular mechanisms regulating the dynamics of Hedgehog receptors and effectors
  • Exploring new approaches to disrupt Hedgehog signaling for intervention in Hedgehog-driven cancers such as medulloblastoma and basal cell carcinoma
