Postdoctoral Associate – Cell Polarity and Development of the Inner Ear

Posted by on May 28th, 2017

    How do we perceive sounds, gravity or head movements? It all starts during development, when sensory cells in the inner ear acquire a crown of motion detectors known as the stereocilia bundle. The Tarchini laboratory investigates the molecular mechanisms that corral and layer stereocilia into a functional bundle, a highly polarized architectural process that,[…]
