Research Summary

There are two main areas of research in the lab currently. 1. We are interested in how cells keep track of developmental time, and we use fetal tissues from mice and humans, as well as embryonic stem cells. 2. In adult animals, regeneration of new neurons requires a fate switch, and we are studying the mechanisms that underlie regenerative reprogramming and cellular plasticity, using mice.
