Dr Helen Dawe
Senior Lecturer in Cell Biology

Profile

I am a molecular cell biologist with interests in cell polarity, cell morphogenesis and the cytoskeleton. My research focuses on how eukaryotic flagella/cilia are built, and how this goes wrong in human inherited disease. I am particularly interested in the early stages of ciliogenesis: centrosome migration and docking at the cell surface, and how these go awry in Meckel-Gruber and Joubert syndromes. I am a member of the Cell Biology research group.
