BAUTCH LAB RESEARCH PAPER APPEARS IN “JOURNAL OF CELL BIOLOGY”

Congratulations to Erich Kushner and the Vicki Bautch Lab for the publication of their paper entitled “Excess Centrosomes Disrupt Endothelial Cell Migration via Centrosome Scattering” which appears in the July 21 issue of Journal of Cell Biology. This study shows that blood vessels of tumors have many cells that carry excess centrosomes, and links the excess centrosomes to cellular defects in tumor blood vessels.  The work was conducted by Erich Kushner (Post doctoral Fellow), Luke Ferro (Biology Undergraduate Student), Jie-Yu Liu (GMB Student), and Jessica Durrant, with contributions by Stephen Rogers (Biology Faculty) and Andrew Dudley (McAllister Heart Institute Faculty) as well as Victoria Bautch (Biology Faculty).
