Current Research and Scholarly Interests
Our laboratory investigates how complex, elaborately patterned tissues form during vertebrate embryonic development. In particular we aim to add a new dimension to our understanding of how cells know where to go, when to move, and differentiate. We combine classical embryology with state-of-the-art biochemistry, imaging, and genomics. Major research areas include delineating the translational regulatory code of the mammalian genome and cutting-edge imaging of tissue patterning.
