Doctor Helder Maiato

Winner of the Louis-Jeantet Young Investigator Career Award (YICA) 2015

Helder Maiato and his team are interested in understanding how chromosome segregation is regulated in space and time during cell division. The team uses and develops state-of-the-art live-cell microscopy and molecular tools to investigate the fundamental mechanisms underlying accurate chromosome segregation in animal model cell systems, and the respective implications to cancer.
