My lab has two projects. (1) We study how neurons and endocrine cells make a unique organelle, the dense-core vesicle, that stores and releases peptide hormones such as insulin. (2) We study the genetics of hybrid incompatibility in C. elegans and related nematodes, aiming to identify genes that lead to speciation and to understand their molecular mechanisms.
