Credentials: Ani is studying the role of the cytoskeleton during cell division. During cytokinesis, the cortex becomes excitable and propagates wavelike patterns of protein activity that ultimately become focused at the furrow. Ani’s project aims to identify and characterize proteins involved in this process (termed “cortical excitability”) and elucidate the various feedback loops that drive this process.
