Faculty team awarded $1.25 million to study 'swimming cells'
They are the tiny motors present in many of the human body's most complex systems: cilia and flagella move liquids such as cerebrospinal fluid and mucus past the cell surface, and throughout the body. Both are of vital importance to human health, but how they actually move remains a mystery. A team from Washington University in St. Louis has been awarded a five-year, $1.25 million grant to study the mechanics of these tiny organelles.
