Jason Stumpff, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics, published an article in the May 15, 2012 issue of Developmental Cell with Michael Wagenbach, Andrew Franck, Charles L. Asbury, and Linda Wordeman of the University of Washington, Seattle, titled Kif18A and Chromokinesins Confine Centromere Movements via Microtubule Growth Suppression and Spatial Control of Kinetochore Tension.

“Our study combined quantitative cell biology and in vitro reconstitution of dynamic microtubules to elucidate two mechanisms that spatially control mitotic chromosome movements.” said Dr. Stumpff about his research.

One of their images was featured on the cover (see left) and they were also asked to make a video about their research, which you can view in their article.


Congratulations to Dr. Stumpff and his associates on this recent publication!
