From MRC UCL

will give a seminar entitled :

Cell division: from archaea to eukaryotes

The Baum lab is interested in the generation of biological form. Since the shape and internal organisation of each cell is determined by a combination of physics, biochemistry and information processing, he use a wide range of techniques to address the problem, including molecular biology, genetics, high-content RNA interference (RNAi) screening, live cell imaging, microfabrication, biophysical techniques and computational modeling. The wider aims of his research are to better understand the evolution of eukaryotic cell shape, to determine how cells regulate their form, and to determine how these processes contribute to normal tissue development and homeostasis and, when they go awry, to the evolution of metastatic cancer.
