In the Liu lab we study the regulation of cilia biogenesis and the role of cilia in cell-cell communication and cell polarity in mammals. Current questions we are investigating include: What is the role of a novel C2 domain-containing protein we have identified in cilia biogenesis? How do cilia interact with the Hedgehog signaling pathway? What is the role of cilia in the development and function of the inner ear?
