Dan Peet

I am currently a postdoc in the Cross lab. I work on kinesin motor proteins, which transport molecular cargo to specific reaction sites in cells. More specifically, I am interested in how kinesins modify the dynamic microtubule tracks upon which they walk.

Research interests

  • Microtubule dynamics
  • Molecular motors
  • Mathematical modeling
  • Computer programming
  • Image analysis
