Outline

Most of the cells in our body has motile and immotile cilia, both of which play essential roles in physiology and development. In this project, we will study principles that determines the pattern of ciliary movement and will reveal mechanism for sensing mechnical force by cilia, by combining experimental and theoretical biology,This will eventually clarify the roles of motile and immotile cilia, and help understanding pathology of ciliopathy in the human.
