Do oriented cell division dictate fate decisions in Mammary stem cells?

The Project focuses on 1) how mitotic spindle dynamics and orientation, cell polarity and chromosome segregation are controlled in the mammary epithelium; 2) how these mechanisms act together to influence cell fate and behaviour; 3) and how their dysregulation leads to malignant transformation.

Multidisciplinary approaches such as single-cell genetic lineage tracing in genetically engineered mice in conjunction with high-resolution 3D imaging and mathematical/computational modelling; mammary organoids; biochemistry and live cell imaging; proteomics; and next generation sequencing are used in this project.
