Positions

Tomomi Tani is an Associate Scientist at the Marine Biological Laboratory since 2010. He received his B.S (Biology) from the University of Tsukuba and his PhD (Biology) from the University of Tokyo. He was a faculty member at Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science and Hokkaido University, where he was an Associate Professor at the Research Institute for Electronic Science. He is interested in the mechanisms on how molecular assemblies such as cytoskeletal proteins or membrane receptors are built in spatially organized manner in response to temporal and spatial signals, which in turn coordinate the growth, division and the migration of cells. He has been developing a new fluorescence microscope to see three dimensional orientations of individual molecules while being assembled in 3D architectures in living cells, multi-cellular tissues and in a whole living organism.
