BIOGRAPHY AND RESEARCH INTERESTS
The broad aims of our research program are to understand how developing vertebrate embryos are regionalized along the primary (anterior to posterior) body axis. Previous work from the Prince lab has contributed to our understanding of Hox genes and hindbrain patterning, gene and genome duplications, endoderm regionalization, and pancreas development. Current work is focused on collective cell migrations: we are pursuing an NSF funded project on facial branchiomotor neuron migration and a Chicago Biomedical Consortium funded project on neural crest migration.
