Laboratory of Organogenesis and Developmental Biology

Laboratory of Organogenesis and Developmental Biology

 

 

Our laboratory studies how organs are built in the developing embryo, from the first steps when embryonic cells adopt tissue-specific identities, through the later stages when the functional organ is assembled from its various cellular components.  Our current work focuses on the formation of the kidney, gonads, and hematopoietic system, and we use the avian embryo (chicken and quail) as our main experimental system.  We also have a strong interest in understanding basic embryological processes, such as embryonic patterning, cell differentiation, migration, and morphogenesis.
