Lab Outreach: Our Lab, Your Lab

Citizen Science: diversity of cell division

We are interested in collecting images of cell division in all kinds of species. You are welcome to share your images with us. Alternatively, interested K-12 students, teachers or parents are welcome to visit the lab on the last Saturdays of every month. Bring your own samples to watch under microscope if you wish. Email Dr. Liu for appointment.


     Over 90% of solid tumors are aneuploid. The long term goal of our research is to understand and exploit aneuploidy in cancers. We are investigating both subcellular structures and regulatory mechanisms involved in chromosome segregation and their defects that lead to aneuploidy. We also aim to identify essential genes for aneuploid cancer cell survival and test whether they can be used for aneuploid cancer prognosis and treatment.
