Juergen Knoblich's lab uses Drosophila and mouse genetics to identify the molecular mechanisms that control asymmetric cell division in stem cell lineages. The lab has identified many of the key players that regulate this process in Drosophila neural stem cells. They found that defects in asymmetric cell division can lead to stem cell derived tumors. More recently, Juergen Knoblich's laboratory has begun to use mouse genetics to understand how those mechanisms are conserved in vertebrates.
