Welcome to the Mitchison Lab

Our research group uses systematic and quantitative methods to address problems in basic cell biology and medicine. Specifically, we are interested in how the mechanism of cell division responds to metabolism, cell size and shape, and pharmacological cues in both normal and diseased cells.
