Our group is interested in understanding the molecular control of actin driven processes. How does the actin cytoskeleton control changes in cell shape and cell motility in a living organism? We use Drosophila as a model system that allows combining genetics, live-imaging analyses with cell biological and biochemical approaches to identify and characterize regulatory components and signals controlling actin dynamics during development.
