The work in the lab focuses on the spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC), which is a conserved mechanism that ensures equal segregation of chromosomes during mitosis. In particularly we are interested in understanding how a single incorrectly attached kinetochore can arrest a cell in mitosis for hours until the error has been corrected. Furthermore once the last kinetochore attaches there is a rapid removal of inhibitory complexes and we are trying to understand how the complexes disassemble.
