Welcome to the Breslow lab in the Department of Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology at Yale University

  • We use functional genomic tools to dissect biological processes at the cellular and molecular level.
  • Our main focus is the mammalian primary cilium, a cellular structure that serves as a signal transduction center in development and disease.
  • Combining new screening technologies with biochemical reconstitution and cell-based microscopy assays, we are pursuing a range of questions at the interface of organelle biology, signal transduction and cell cycle control.
