Description: Presentation delivered 17 October 2011 at Haverford College, Sharpless Auditorium.; Dr. Ghabrial is interested in understanding how tubular structures are built. Tubes of different sizes, shapes and cellular architectures compose most organs and glands and disruption and/or deployment of tube formation is associated with many diseases (from polycystic kidney to angiogenesis of tumors). Dr. Ghabrial's lab uses the simple structure of the Drosophila tracheal system as a model system to uncover the genetic and molecular basis of how tubes are made and shaped. He has identified many genes involved in this process and his in-depth analysis of several of these mutants has highlighted connections to known human medical conditions.
