Unraveling how cells connect global tissue asymmetry to individual cell polarity
Our body and organs take asymmetrical shape along various axes and this global asymmetry is coupled to polarity of individual cells in epithelial planes (planar cell polarity).
We are exploring logic of this connection.
Planar cell polarity underlies critical epithelial functions and our long-term goal is to contribute to understanding basis of diseases that are caused by defective cell polarization.
