Research in my lab is directed toward an understanding of the molecular, genetic and developmental mechanisms involved in neural crest cell development. Neural crest cells, have the extraordinary ability to retain stem cell-like characteristics during development and give rise to multiple derivatives, including peripheral neurons, pigment cells and craniofacial cartilage, which form most of the vertebrate face. We focus on transcriptional regulation of neural crest specification, differentiation into craniofacial structures, and formation of sensory cells in the peripheral nervous system.
