Research is to understand, from a systems level, how signaling architecture and protein interactions provide the basis for noise rejection and signal amplification – central elements to a measurement apparatus. Focus on three key cell biological processes: 1) the Spindle assembly checkpoint, 2) Cilium length regulation and 3) Gradient sensing in leukocytes.
