Shlomi is interested in the nano-scale and micron-scale movement of proteins and organelles in the cytoplasm of living cells. He is using confocal and SIM imaging to quantify protein movement, localization, and oligomerization. Shlomi is also developing a Selective Plane Illumination (SPIM) approach for observing protein dynamics in 3D.
Rivkah is studying the role of intermediate filaments in aging, inclusion formation, and stress response.
Sundar is studying replicative rejuvenation, or the asymmetric partitioning of damage during mitosis in stem cells and differentiated cells.
Pratibha is developing a C. elegans model for exploring the molecular players of protein aggregation in neurons of a living worm. Studying the lives of mammalian cells will better our understanding of dynamic nature of protein folding.
