Research Summary

The process by which embryos acquire their final shape involves the coordination of cell fate decisions with cell movement. We are taking an integrated approach to understanding this process in vertebrate embryos. We combine molecular manipulations, time-lapse imaging, and old-fashioned cut & paste embryology to investigate molecular signaling, individual cell behavior, and tissue rearrangement. By considering all of these components and how they affect the final body plan, we hope to build a comprehensive picture of early embryonic morphogenesis.
