Catherine G. Galbraith, Ph.D., works at the interface of biology and physics to facilitate discoveries of fundamental mechanisms that are applicable to processes as diverse as specification of cell fate, and cancer cell metastasis, and synaptogenesis. She studies fundamental mechanisms of motility and connectivity using a combination of imaging, cell biology, biophysics, and molecular biology and addresses cutting edge biological questions by applying emerging technologies.
