Maintenance, remodeling, and deterioration of tissue pattern and physiology
Faculty Contact Information
Developmental process shapes sophisticated adult tissue pattern. This pattern is maintained over time and also remodeled or deteriorated by intrinsic and extrinsic factors, which affects tissue physiology and organismal health. Our overarching goal is to understand the mechanisms underlying the maintenance, remodeling, and deterioration of tissue pattern and physiology. We are particularly interested in elucidating novel ’tissue non-autonomous’ mechanisms affecting tissue integrity, metabolism, and malignant transformation by utilizing Drosophila genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry.
