Mahi joined the lab in April 2016, after doing his PhD with the lab of Dirk Bohmann in Rochester, NY and a Postdoctoral stint in Jordi Cassanova Group at IRB, Barcelona. Cell extrusion from the point of origin is an important process in tumor metastasis. Using Drosophila imaginal discs and 3D organoid culture of human cells as model systems, he is aiming to understand the signaling mechanisms involved in cell extrusion/delamination.
