Professor of Genetics and Development
Department of Molecular & Cell Biology
(510) 643-1608

Research Expertise and Interest

molecular biology, genetics, developmental biology, vertebrate embryonic development, embryology, mesodermal patterning


We are interested in how cells become sequentially determined to more precisely defined fates during vertebrate embryonic development, and how this process depends upon cell position and upon interactions among neighboring cells. To address these questions, we use genetics, molecular biology, and embryology to investigate mesodermal patterning and segmentation in the zebrafish embryo.
