Shelby Blythe Awarded the F32 NIH/NRSA Fellowship

Dr. Shelby Blythe, a postdoctoral fellow in the Wieschaus lab, was awarded the F32 NIH/NRSA fellowship for his research project "Mechanisms for Measuring the Nucleocytoplasmic Ratio in Early Embryogenesis". The measurement of cell size is a fundamental biological process that underlies tissue homeostasis, functioning as a checkpoint to prevent unregulated cell growth. However, the mechanism whereby cells monitor their size is poorly understood. This research will study one sizing mechanism, the nucleocytoplasmic ratio, using as a model the early Drosophila embryo. This work aims to define a fundamental mechanism that regulates the measurement of embryonic cell size and for controlling the maternal to zygotic transition.
