Research in the Gerhold lab tackles the study of cell division in situ, i.e. in a cell’s native environment. We are interested in understanding how fundamental mitotic processes are modified by the adoption of cell fate during development, by physiological changes in the adult organism and by the complex architecture of mature tissues. To address these questions, we use a combination of in situ live-cell imaging, quantitative image analysis and genetic approaches in the germline stem cells and embryonic blastomeres of the mighty worm Caenorhabditis elegans.
