Research Interests

Cellular and molecular mechanisms of morphogenesis

Research Description

The goal of our research is to learn the cellular, molecular and biomechanical mechanisms underlying morphogenetic movements during embryogenesis. One of the fundamental problems in developmental biology is determining what local cellular activities underlie the morphogenesis of cell populations. Analysis of this problem requires an integrated, multilevel approach. We examine the cell motility or shape changes that constitute the motor" of morphogenetic movement with time lapse recording of low light videomicroscopy
