The lab of Amy Shaub Maddox has renewed their NIH R01 grantentitled “Mechanisms of Cell Shape Change in Cytokinesis.” This funding will allow them to explore the molecular and mechanical mechanisms of time-delayed negative feedback in the actomyosin contractile cytoskeleton that underlie the dynamics they recently discovered, such as speed oscillations. Current lab members Michael WernerDaniel Cortes, and Katie Rehain-Bell contributed the preliminary results that made this proposal a success.
