Welcome to the Suzuki Lab at the University of Wisconsin Madison

Our lab focuses on kinetochore functions in faithful chromosome segregation. We are studying how the loss of kinetochore integrity causes cancer. We utilize light microscopy and imaging techniques to elucidate kinetochore mechanisms. We also study HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1) protein functions in cell cycle regulations and the mechanism underlying EBV (Epstein Barr Virus) capsid assembly.

The Suzuki Lab is part of McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research, in the Oncology Department of the School of Medicine and Public Health, at the University of Wisconsin Madison.

Dr. Aussie Suzuki is an Oncology Faculty Trainer for the Cancer Biology Graduate Program, Biophysics Graduate Program, Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology Graduate Program (MCP), and Cellular and Molecular Biology Graduate Program (CMB) at UW Madison.
