Bahmanyar Lab highlighted in Yale News for their research on how cells regulate the size of the nucleus

“A team of Yale researchers discovered how a protein called Ndc1 coordinates nuclear pore and envelope assembly after cell division, an important component of understanding how cell nuclei change in cancer.”

The study’s principal investigator, Shirin Bahmanyar, associate professor of molecular, cellular and developmental biology, and first author of the paper Michael Mauro GRD ’22, a former Yale graduate student and current postdoctoral associate at Columbia University, used quantitative fluorescence microscopy to study the process of nuclear growth in C. elegans worms. Their research, published earlier this summer, explains one of the ways cells regulate nuclear size, which could help understand how cell nuclei change when a person has cancer.”
