Welcome to the Quantitative Biology Lab!

Our goal is to elucidate the biochemical and biophysical principles that underlie the self-organization and scaling of subcellular organelles. Each cellular organelle carries out a distinct function, which is not only related to its molecular composition, but in many cases also to its size. The mitotic spindle for example must be large enough to span sufficient distance to physically separate chromosomes into two opposite halves of the cell.

What we do

We perform basic science research on the biochemical and biophysical principles that underlie the self-organization and scaling of subcellular organelles. In particular, we wish to understand the organisational principles that determine the size and the shape of the metaphase spindle.
