Cell Death
Cell Death


Research in the Minden lab

Our lab uses proteomics, fluorescent probe development and time-lapse microscopy to study two central questions in developmental biology:

  • Tissue morphogenesis: Embryo development is typified by a tremendous amount of cell movement. How do the cells in fruit fly (Drosophila) embryos change their shape to drive tissue morphogeneis?
  • Programmed cell death: Programmed cell death (apoptosis) plays a central role in embryonic development. How do cells decide to die to maintain tissue homostasis?
