Our Research

During mitosis, a full set of chromosomes must be equally transmitted to the offspring of each dividing cell. Failures in this process can result in numerous disorders, including birth defects and tumor progression. The Funabiki lab studies the mechanisms by which accurate chromosome segregation is ensured and the consequences resulting from mitotic failures.
