This was a fun and fruitful collaboration, thank you Kim and Jim!
A nice surprise
Our recent paper was highlighted in Science in the Editor’s choice “This week in other journals” section
Our new paper is out!
The staircase pattern of the hair bundle, with stereocilia of graded heights across rows, is a universal feature of hair cells essential for sensory function. We uncover evidence that suggests this unique architecture could be specified by a protein complex guiding planar polarization of the hair cell before the hair bundle emerges. Article
