Recycling polarity – mechanisms controlling stem cell polarity in consecutive divisions in the developing Drosophila central nervous system

Grantholder:

Dr Jens Januschke

University of Dundee

Central to Jens's research interests are the mechanisms behind the dynamics of cell polarisation in cycling cells. In particular, he is using life-cell imaging approaches to study how cell polarity and asymmetric division are linked in neuroblasts, the rapidly dividing stem cells of the developing Drosophila central nervous system.
