Thrilled to have this accepted just before the new year! Congrats Nandini and Frankie.

Sitara’s work on AFM imaging of depolymerizing microtubule arrays is accepted for publication!

Congratulations to Sitara, Frankie and Jason!

Welcome to the lab, Anju!!

At the 2021 ASCB meeting, Farah and Radhika co-chaired a subgroup session, “Not Just a Cellular Railroad: Microtubules as Cargoes and Signaling Centers”, together with Le Ma (Jefferson) and Aga Kendrick (UCSD)!

We had a load of fun organizing this and Farah and Aga gave beautiful talks.

Radhika presented the lab’s work at a special subgroup session celebrating the 50th anniversary of ASCB’s Women In Cell Biology program.

It was an honor and a great pleasure to participate in this subgroup session and present the work of four “wonder women” in my lab. A huge thanks to the organizers.

Nandini is selected as an ISFS Associate for the Intersections Science Fellows Symposium, November 2021.

Congratulations Nandini!

Farah is selected to speak at the Rising Stars in Cancer Biology Symposium

Organized by:  The University of Utah, Department of Oncological Sciences and the Huntsman Cancer institute (HCI). Congratulations!!

Nandini gave a beautiful talk on differential regulation of crosslinked arrays and single microtubules at the Motors in Quarantine webinar series.

Welcome to Sree, the newest postdoc to join the lab. We are excited to have you on the team.

Lauryn Aliwalas joins the lab as a research tech. Welcome!

It was wonderful to gather together after nearly a year and a half for Alex's farewell dinner.

We miss you, Alex!

Alex heads to grad school. Good luck - come back and visit us!

The lab has a microtubule shaped bottle holder for future celebrations. We love it – thank you, Alex!

Our work on differential regulation of crosslinked and single microtubules is online!

Congratulations to all the authors for the hard work and wonderful team spirit!

Radhika and Nandini attend the 'Mitotic spindle: From living and synthetic systems to theory’ conference.

Nandini gave a fantastic talk on her reconstitution of the differential regulation of spatially proximal single microtubules and crosslinked bundles.

Thank’s to the organizers of MGH's YPG Trivia Night. We had a lot of fun!

We ended 2020 with two new manuscripts uploaded on the bioRxiv

Congratulations to Sitara, and our fantastic collaborators Meredith Betterton and Shane Fiorenza.

We had a lot of fun cracking the code to escape our virtual room at our zoom holiday party.

Not only did we avoid turning into zombies (with merely 45 seconds to spare), we found the cure-all vaccine as well! Yay!
Thanks to the folks at Escape Experience, Chattanooga for a wonderful experience.

We are thrilled that our new Atomic Force Microscope has arrived.

It’s time to do some fun experiments! Thank you Sitara for helping with installation.

We are excited that Nandini is back in Boston! Welcome back!

Farah presented her work at the Genetics Dept. DJ Club and at the UK Cilia Network e-Symposia Series.

Congrats on the excellent talks.

We celebrated Christian’s acceptance to grad school.

Congratulations and best of luck! We will miss you!

Farah receives the best poster award at the Genetics Department retreat. Yay!

Farah is selected as a ‘2020 Leading Edge Fellow’. Congratulations!

Sitara’s poster at the Biophysical Society meeting in San Diego is a success!

Continuous interest for over 2 hours.

Lauryn joins the lab remotely. Welcome!

More competition for “QOTD”, our daily lab trivia event hosted by Nandini.

The lab receives funding from the American Cancer Society. Thank you, ACS!

Irene joins the lab. Welcome!
