Silke Hauf

Silke Hauf is an Assistant Professor in Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, USA.

Her group has an interest in the mechanisms that make cell division a highly reliable process. This includes how the spindle assembly checkpoint guards chromosome segregation. Following into the footsteps of the Ciliberto group, her lab combines experiments and computational modeling to understand the dynamics and regulation of mitosis.
