Endocrinology from single-cell perspective

Biological discoveries, one cell at a time.

How individuals come together to form a team.

Our research interest lies in understanding the organizational principles underlying a cellular community. Similar to human society, cellular societies are required to efficiently multi-task in order to survive in an ever-changing environment. We want to understand how cells distribute the various tasks among themselves to achieve multi-tasking.

Live Imaging at cellular resolution

Illuminating cellular properties.

For cooperative behavior to develop in human or cellular society, efficient communication is necessary. In cells, communication involves listening to external stimulus and translating it into intercellular signaling. We are interested in live imaging of the intercellular signaling pathways at single-cell resolution to gain insights into the communication underlying cooperative behavior; and modulating it to understand its role during disease development.
