Kumaran S. Ramamurthi, Investigator with the Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Head, Cell Biology Unit, National Institutes of Health Center for Cancer

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


Ramamurthi’s laboratory studies fundamental mechanisms that cells use to differentiate and divide in an effort to understand how these processes may go awry during disease. His lab focuses on how proteins localize to particular subcellular locations and how they subsequently assemble to form large structures during development and cell division. Recently, he discovered that the shape of cellular...   More >
