Denise Montell, Ph.D. Professor of Biological Chemistry Date of Presentation : 3/2/2009 Title of Presentation : Movies, models, and more – the molecular genetics of cell migration Biosketch : B.A. 1983, University of California, San Diego; Ph.D. 1988, Stanford University; Postdoctoral fellow, Carnegie Institution of Washington Research Interests : Dr. Montell is studying cell migration and morphogenesis. Although cell migration is a critical aspect of normal embryonic development, it is also exhibited in numerous pathologies, including inflammatory disease and tumor metastasis. Dr. Montell has developed a simple and genetically tractable model system to observe cell migration in vivo. This system is comprised of a small group of cells that undergo migration during ovarian development in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. This approach differs from the majority of research, which investigates cell migration in vitro. The Montell lab has identified dozens of genes that are involved in communication
