Our group studies the biology of the primary cilium, an essential organelle that mediates critical intracellular signaling pathways. We are working to identify the signaling pathways that control the assembly of primary cilia, and to define the roles of cilia in embryonic development and in human diseases, especially neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. We have a number of exciting projects using cell culture and mouse models to characterize novel signaling pathways residing in the primary cilia of mammalian neurons.
