Research outline(1-3 pages)

The mitotic spindle checkpoint prevents chromosome loss.  I want to understand how this checkpoint regulates chromosome segregation during eukaryotic cell division, primarily by studying how the spindle checkpoint inhibits the cell cycle regulator the Anaphase-Promoting Complex (APC).  Yeast genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry in combination are powerful tools for exploring the molecular roles of protein complexes.  In the lab, I use my training in these fields to develop biochemical, cell biological and genetic approaches to ask how the mitotic spindle checkpoint functions to inhibit APC.
