Molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate the asymmetric stem cell division. Primary focus is how niche signal is the spatially restricted with the emphasis on the novel stem cell specific structure, MT (microtubule based) -nanotubes. Long-term research interest is to comprehensively understand the mechanism how the extrinsic and intrinsic regulations are integrated to ensure the precise cell fate determination.
