Welcome to the Verhey Lab
Our lab is tackling broad questions about how microtubules and molecular motors function to drive intracellular transport in eukaryotic cells. We combine techniques and approaches from biophysics and cell biology, particularly microscopy-based approaches, to develop an understanding of intracellular trafficking from the molecular to the cellular scale. This has led us down diverse avenues of research, from how motors use ATP to generate force and directed to motion, to how cells use post-translational modifications to generate diverse microtubule populations, to how microtubules and motors build the primary cilium.
