Grant renewal: Molecular mechanisms coordinating the actin and microtubule cytoskeletons

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences, National Institutes of Health, has awarded a four-year renewal of “Molecular mechanisms coordinating the actin and microtubule cytoskeletons”. This grant funds a joint research project of Jeff Gelles’ and Bruce Goode’s labs at Brandeis.  The project is to determine the molecular processes by which microtubule and actin networks interact to control the architecture and dynamics of eukaryotic cells.  The project has resulted in numerous publications co-authored by members of the two labs, and we are grateful for the opportunity to continue this research.nigms_logo
