Research Interest

  • Cell cycle
  • Cell polarity and cytoskeleton
  • Cellular fate and dynamic distribution of proteins
  • Yeast genetics
  • Cell signalling
  • Cancer
  • I am currently investigating the cellular fate of heterologous proteins expressed in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. I am particularly interested to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating their dynamic distribution within cells and their partition at time of cell division. I am studying protein-protein interactions and post-translational modifications regulating protein degradation. I am focusing on how protein expression would modify morphogenesis and cell viability (proteotoxicity) in fission yeast. For that purpose, I use and develop genetic tools (conditional mutants, genetically modified yeast strains expressing tagged protein) and cell biology methods (fluorescence live cell imaging, FRAP).
