"Tissue specific differences in stem cell spindle assembly"

Event Date: 
Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - 14:15 to 15:15
Event Location: 
CTIR Sir Kenneth and Lady Noreen Murray Seminar Room
Professor Kate Storey FRSE FMedSci FRSB
Event Speaker: 
Dr Lori Borgal
Event Type: 








Dr. Borgal is currently a Royal Society Newton International Fellow hosted by the University of Exeter, where she studies stem cell mitosis in developing Drosophila tissues. Her research interests focus on phospho-regulation of the microtubule associated protein Abnormal spindle (Asp) and demonstrate that the mitotic requirements for Asp differ in a tissue-dependent manner. She completed her PhD at the University of Cologne in Germany where she focused on the influence of primary cilia-associated protein phosphorylation on Wnt signaling in human cell culture, and her BSc and MSc in Neuroscience at Dalhousie University in Canada.
