Welcome to our new research assistant Chidera Agwu!

Chidera did his undergraduate studies at  Saint Louis University (MO), receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience. He will be investigating how defects in centrosome biogenesis and structure affect embryonic kidney development. Welcome to the lab!

Our paper about centriole appendages is published in Nature Comm.

This study was led by Jadranka Loncarek’s group (NIH). They used correlative super-resolution (STORM) microscopy and TEM tomography to characterize the organization of centriole distal appendages in various ciliated cells. The study, titled “High-resolution characterization of centriole distal appendage morphology and dynamics by correlative STORM and electron microscopy” is available online at Nature Communications.
