Kathleen’s research uses fruit flies as a genetic model to help understand the roles specific genes play in the cell cycle. By turning on and off these genes at various points in development, she is working to determine the relationships between these genes, how these genes are critical to normal cell cycle proceedings, and how problems with these genes can ultimately lead to cancer.
