Kevin Corbett's laboratory at the UCSD Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine and the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research is focused on the molecular mechanisms of genome organization and chromosome segregation in mitosis & meiosis. We're also interested in how mis-regulation of these pathways can contribute to cancer. The group uses structural biology and biochemistry to investigate protein function at an atomic level, and we collaborate with groups in San Diego and worldwide to understand their functions in the larger context of both normal and cancer cell biology.
