GENOMIC FEATURES ORIGINATING FROM THIS LAB
Show all 7 genomic features


STATEMENT OF RESEARCH INTERESTS
We focus especially on the cell-cell communication and behavior supporting tissue homeostasis and explore unknown molecular systems controlling embryonic development, organogenesis, regeneration, aging, and disease, using in vivo imaging, animal model genetics, molecular and cell biology, and biochemistry techniques.
