Personal profile

University profile

Dr. Robert O'Hagan's lab at Montclair State University uses a microscopic roundworm, C. elegans, to study molecular signposts that regulate intracellular traffic and cytoskeletal structure. Using the tools of molecular genetics, cell biology, and microscopy, Dr. O'Hagan and his researchers have found genes that encode the enzymes that install or remove these signposts. These signposts are particularly prevalent on the microtubules that comprise the axoneme of cilia and flagella. Their future goals include facilitating the understanding of how ciliary structure and function affect neuroregeneration and neurodegeneration, as well as how microtubule signposts may be targeted to create new treatments.
