Description:
This research investigates the role of Tropomodulin, an important regulator of the actin cytoskeleton, in Tube development. This research will create new knowledge of how biological tubes normally develop, which is a necessary first step towards developing better strategies to prevent and treat diseases that result from misregulation of tube formation. paulson.jpg
