Welcome to the Uyeda Lab

"Movement" is intrinsic to life. It is fascinating to observe aspects of movements such as moving cells and molecular motors under a microscope. Our goal is to understand the mechanisms of cell motility through research at cellular and molecular level. We are particularly interested in cellular slime molds as a model organism with unique characteristics of eukaryotic cell movement, and in actin filaments, one of the major components of the cytoskeletal system.
