Research interests

My research is on the identifying novel regulators of Mitosis.

Mitosis is an integral part of the Cell Cycle, whereby a cell undergoes the process of dividing into two daughter cells. Previously, researchers have identifed kinases, phosphotases and other proteins that facilitate this well choreographed process to ensure precise chromosome segregation. A proteomics screen has identified potential novel candidates proteins that coordinates mitosis.

For this project, I will use gene editing techniques such as CRISPR and RNAi on the most promising gene to elucidate their role during mitosis, and observed through time-lapse microscopy.
