Friedman Lab


Our lab is interested in addressing a fundamental question of cell biology: How are organelles spatially organized? To address these and related questions, our lab takes a multidisciplinary approach combining fluorescence and electron microscopy, proteomics, biochemistry, systems biology, and genetics in both human tissue culture and yeast model systems.
