Research Interest

Our laboratory uses zebrafish as a model system to answer fundamental questions regarding stem cell biology, tissue morphogenesis, and mechanisms of cancer metastasis.  Our goals are to better understand how the vertebrate body plan is established, and to provide insights into regenerative medicine and cancer therapies.
