We are studying on dynamics of cytoskeletal proteins, cell movement, cytokinesis, signal transduction of chemotaxis, and on biophysics of cellular movement using cellular slime mold Dictyostelium discoideum, neutrophil-like human promyelocytic leukemia cells and fish keratocytes.

Photographs show D. discoideum (left) and keratocytes (right).
