Åsmund Husabø Eikenes, Phd student from Harald Stenmark's group at Department of Biochemistry at the Institute for Cancer research, has been invited to contribute to the new popular scientific Oslo University Hospital research blog. In is recent blog article he writes about how his PhD work on spermatogenesis in Drosophilia melanogaster have led to the discovery of novel control mechanisms that are crucial for precision during cell division.
