Polarity Establishment and Maintenance in Candida albicans

The Gale laboratory studies the molecular mechanisms of morphogenesis in the opportunistic fungal pathogen, Candida albicans. By using molecular and cell biological approaches, they hope to dissect the differences that underlie yeast- and hyphal-form growth and to understand how the filamentous hypha, in particular, facilitates tissue invasion. Specific research projects utilizing MSI resources involve quantification of dynamic hyphal tip-localized structures during morphogenesis in mutant and control strains.
