Research

Philippe Soriano’s laboratory studies growth factor signaling pathways that have important roles in mouse embryonic development. In particular, our lab is interested in the general question of how biological specificity is acquired upon engagement of growth factor signaling. A major focus of our research is in craniofacial biology, where we seek to identify the pathways by which Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) and Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) signaling regulate the development of the midface and palate. We are also establishing the signaling pathways that are engaged by FGF signaling that govern the establishment of extraembryonic stem cell fate (TS cells and XEN cells) as well as the differentiation of Embryonic and Epiblast Stem Cells (ES cells and EpiSCs).
