Research Interests
Cell Cycle
For living, cells need to transmit the whole content of their genetic information to their descendants. Chromosomes are the support of this genetic information. Cells replicate chromosomes in two identical copies called sisters chromatids. The segregation of these sister chromatids to each daughter cell has to be very accurate. Any mistake in segregation creates aneuploid cells which quickly dies or evolves to cancer. My research is focus on the understanding of chromosome segregation mechanisms.
