The Cabernard Lab was recently awarded a prestigious, 5-year $1.5M R01 grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH). This new grant, "Cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the formation of sibling cell size asymmetry," will support integrative research investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating the dynamic behavior of the cell cortex during asymmetric cell division. This project aims to elucidate how physical asymmetry is generated and how it contributes to cell fate specification and brain formation.
The National Institute of Medical Sciences (NIGMS) awards research project grants (R01) to an eligible institution on behalf of a principal investigator to support a discrete project related to the investigator's area of interest and competence. For more information visit the Cabernard Lab website.
