Regulation of Cell Division in Development and Disease

Angelika Amon’s research focuses on how cell growth and division are regulated during normal development and in disease. Amon and her team study several aspects of cell growth and division, such as how macromolecule biosynthesis is coordinated with cell division and how chromosome segregation is controlled. They also investigate how errors in these processes lead to diseases such as cancer and Down Syndrome and how they contribute to aging.
