Dr. Walczak's research interests include:
Our lab is interested in the fundamental mechanisms that cells use to accurately distribute their genetic material to the two daughter cells. Defects in this process lead to aneuploidy and genomic instability, which are hallmarks of cancer. Using a combination of biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology, genomics, and high resolution imaging techniques we ask fundamental questions about how cells maintain mitotic fidelity and how cell maintain proper ploidy.
