Research Interests
The fungi are an ecologically, economically, and medically important group of organisms.  Dr. Gremillion is interested in highlighting the cellular components involved in filamentous fungal polarization using the model fungus Aspergillus nidulans.  Mutations in two protein subunits of the Conserved Oligomeric Golgi (COG) complex have been linked to abnormal fungal growth.  Dr. Gremillion and her undergraduate students are investigating the role of the eight subunits (COG1-8) in the function of the complex.
