About this conference
Cell division is a fundamental process for all living organisms. During the last step of cell division, the mother cell physically separates its content into two daughter cells, a process that is termed cytokinesis. In certain circumstances however, such as during the development of gamete precursors in all animal species, cytokinesis is incomplete, leaving the two daughter cells connected by a stable intercellular bridge. The Labbé group studies development of the C. elegans germ line to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that sustain incomplete cytokinesis in animal cells. The work presented will focus on the strengths of C. elegans as a system to tackle such fundamental cell and developmental biology problems and how it can lead to the uncovering of novel and conserved regulators of cell division

About Jean-Claude Labbé
After obtaining his PhD at Université de Montréal in 1999, Dr. Jean-Claude Labbé pursued postdoctoral training, first with Dr. Bob Goldstein at UNC-Chapel Hill and then with Dr. Monica Gotta at the ETH in Zürich, studying the regulation of polarity and asymmetric division of the early C. elegans embryo. He established his research group in 2005 at Université de Montréal’s Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer to pursue his work on the regulation of cell division during animal development.
