Research

The lab is interested in how cells become sequentially determined to more precisely defined fates during vertebrate embryonic development, and how this process depends upon cell position and upon interactions among neighboring cells. To address these questions, we use genetics, molecular biology, and embryology to investigate mesodermal patterning and segmentation in the zebrafish embryo.
