Research Interests: cellular and molecular machinery regulating the establishment and maintenance of cell polarity. The especial focus is regulation of endocytic membrane transport and cytoskeletal dynamics. Laboratory works on three main projects: the molecular machinery mediating epithelial cell polarization and loss of that polarity during cancer formation, deciphering the mechanisms of invadopodia formation and localized extracellular matrix remodeling during cancer cell metastasis, regulation of asymmetric cell division and midbody inheritance, as well as the role of midbody inheritance and accumulation during stem cell differentiation and maintenance.
