The role of phase separation in organising cellular biochemistry
We are actively studying the physical mechanisms of phase separation in the lab, using biophysical, genetic, and chemical methods. The principles of phase separation also inform our understanding of the formation of centrosomes, another active area of research in the lab. Click the buttons below to find out more about our research on phase separations and centrosomes, and also learn more about our current work on mitotic cell rounding, and on the fitness of C.elegans in different temperature environments. Finally, learn how TransgeneOmics in the Hyman lab have transformed our genetic approaches to everything we study.
